Where my port is, it is clearly protruding outside of my stomach like a lump...anyone else?

Very normal. Its simply sitting under your skin and once the fat is gone it can become very visible,

When i had my Tummy Tuck, my plastic surgeon moved mine and took the back off it to reduce its profile, its now much closer to my belly button where there is a natural contour, and barely visible even though i have a very flat stomach and liw body fat.

Yep. As the weight comes off, I can feel it more and more. I suspect it will be visible (bump) as I progress towards goal.

I was banded on the 13th and mine is protruding as well. Mine is located about 2 1/2 to 3 inches below the center of my breasts. I'm thankful for having it and proud of it. Just hate that it's so '' out there''.

Aw this is kind of a bummer! I'm not yet banded but like many was looking forward to being able to sport a bikini in a couple years and if the port's that visible I guess that won't be happening :(

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        Congratulations! You have every right to feel proud!

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

      3. Krestel

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

        Yay you!!! You're a rockstar girlie!!!

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
