How is everyone doing???



Recommended Posts

We should have all had our surgery by now! How is everyone healing, feeling, loosing?? :wink:

What stage of the diet are you on?

I thought it would be cool to have a thread where we can all keep our weights to track our progress. I would be more than happy to keep it updated.

Hey HotMomma....

I'm doing great felt ok day 1-3 post op days 4-6 felt like crap...by day 7 I felt pretty good.....

Today I'm day 13 on soft foods....food is soooooo goooood. I'm trying to stay around 500-800 cals

Down 11.5 lbs @ my post op visit, but I think real food has added a cpl of those back, but I know that is only temporary.

I've been eating very small meals, not TOOO hungry so I think I'm doing really well.

Hope everyone else is doing GREAT!!!

G'day all,

I'm down about 20lbs. I was banded 4 weeks ago. Haven't lost anything in the last week :blink: I can eat anything i want and haven't had a prob with bread or rice. Really need some restriction fast!!!! I get my first fill on April 21st and can't wait as my will power to restrict myself is getting harder and harder. I have been warned that it may take till my 3rd fill untill i notice any restriction. They said i will get 1cc on my first and second fill and 2cc on my third. I truly can't wait as it really is like banded hell at the moment... as in i'm banded but have No restriction.

Hey everyone!

I was banded and 3/18 and I'm doing great. The first two weeks were pure hell on the liquid diet but now that I'm eating mushies/soft foods and the hunger isn't so bad. I've lost 20 lbs since being banded and I have pretty decent restriction and I'm having my first fill on 4/13.

Hi all~ I've seen a couple of you on the other thread.

I am 36 days post op and have lost 25. Last week after starting solid foods I had actually gained 4 lbs back! I was only eating around 800 calories and exercising, so it truly freaked me out. Now... today, I am back down to the -25. I had my first fill on Tues.. and am bummed that I don't feel any restriction. But my dr said most don't until 2nd or 3rd fill. I am motivated right now.. and am able to get past the hunger. When I get a real hunger pang...I eat one of the little individual 1 oz. tubs of weight watchers cream cheese. For some reason, it sticks and instantly makes me feel ok. They are 60 cal. and only 2 gms of Protein.

I would suggest asking your doc to prescribe you the Water pill. They are pretty small and should help but you should also check out why you're having swelling in your legs and feet.

Hi there..banded on march the 4th and down about 20 pounds since then. Got my first fill on thursday of last week and well still no restriction. I got 2ccs and hoped that it would help but no luck. I haven had restriction since about 7 weeks out..so I have been slipping here and there because I am so hungry most of the time. I still eat Protein first and havent eaten any bread or anything like that...just hanging in there. My doc told me to come back in a month to get another fill if this one doesnt work...so I will give it another week....if no change gonna go ahead and schedule the 2nd fill..i hope i get more restriction after the second one because no weight loss in about 4 weeks!

Nicanette how are you doing?

I had my second fill a week ago and I am now at 5 cc's. I do feel some restriction but not full restriction. I had been going up and down with my weigh for the last month and I am hoping to start going down again. I know I have some restriction now because I have had a few episodes of pbing when I ate too fast because I was too hungry. I have deceided to eat very small amounts every couple hours and try to eat mostly Protein since my body does not respond well to carbs and in turn I dont loose or I gain.

Hey all

Pezo, I did not feel restriction until my 3rd fill and then BAM I could not keep anything down for days. I had thought about getting an unfill but decided to work with my band a littl more. That was almost 3 weeks aga and now I have learned soo much more about using this tool. I figured out the majority of my problems were from eating too large a bite and not chewing enough. I can feel good restriction after about a saucer of food, which is really all we should be eating. I feel better and my clothesw are all hanging off of me...LOL it feels great. SHorts that were too tight are now too loose, my work pants won't stay usp at all so I went to the next size smaller, now they are getting loose.

Im very happy that I had this surgery!! :ihih:

Hey Fab by 50,

I had my 3rd fill today and felt the restriction right away. To date I have lost 47 lbs and was told by my surgeon today that I could well be under 200 lbs by the end of summer, so that was great news. I started @ 281 and to finally be in the 1's would be awesome. I too am happy I had the surgery!:rolleyes:
