I had what I consider my first NSV, I have only been banded 8 days, I lost 10 lbs prior to surgery and I have lost 14 lbs since being banded, so that is 24 lbs from my 1st 100 lbs I need to lose. I am a High Weight High BMI patient. My Highest weight was 576 and My Surgery weight was 566 and My Current weight is 552. I am doing it in small goals of 100, but the best part which is the NSV part is I thought I would have to wait awhile after surgery to be taken completely off my Type 2 Diabetes meds and well I am officially off them and for the first time in a year my sugars are normal, like really normal. I cant believe it, I am so happy. To me that is a NSV because it was one of the reasons I had the surgery was to help get my sugars under control as well as my weight. I am testing my sugar 4 times a day right now to make sure they stay in the normal range but so far they are averaging about 110 with food and alittle lower fasting. Just wanted to share my GOOD news!

I just remembered I saw on someone's signature line that said something like "Losing 100 lbs is losing 10 lbs ten times." So even 10 lb increments is a great way to think about it.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
