Hello ladies,
This all just proves we are all different…… As you know jo i only had 5 mls in my band before christmas and i couldn’t keep a meal down. So i had quarter of a ml out before christmas. Still feel some restriction, but i know i can eat more then a month ago. Proved this with a weight watchers sandwich the other day….it did get stuck, and i was uncomfortable for 10 mins or so, but it did go down in the end…. Waited about 15mins before eating the second one, that went down no problem. The truth is a month ago i wouldn’t of even gone for a sandwich….. But my nurse has told me, i have to try and use alittle willpower along side my band……….. Not easy some days.

Please stay positive jo, and keep telling yourself ‘ you’ve lost a stone, that’s 14 lbs…..’ and you are still very much at the start of your journey.

Best wishes
Heidi. X
