Hi both,

Restriction is not a straight forward thing, everyday is kind if different. I have had my band now for over a year. I found during the year that my apetite has come and gone and when it returns to near normal I have to have a fill. Anatomically u change as you loose weight, I am sure this has something to do with this. Also in the last few months my weight loss has really slowed, and think this is done to my body adapting to less calories so have had to step up the exercise, 5.5 stone down in a year not bad still 2 to go and I will be truly happy, with an ideal
BMI when I can fit medium close I will jump for joy. Overall in my experience it’s a gradual thing with the band not as dramatic as bypassees but we get there in the end.

Paul
