Hi Jo,

When my band was fitted for 2 to 3 weeks I just didn’t feel hungry at all, I was told that the band sits a little higher than in the past, by doing this it ain’t on or near a nerve that tell the brain your not hungry or not thinking of food….. I had to force myself to eat, although I was complaining….

I soon started to eat at a near regular time as possible, mainly fresh fish veg and fruit…

I still eat much of the same, I also have a supply of slimfast shakes and snacks….

After my first fill I had a lot of restriction and although my intake was small it got smaller… I have just today had my second fill and back on tomato soup for a day of two along with my slimfast stash….

But most of all I have exercised nearly every day… Swimming fast walking uphill etc… Bit of cycling…. So less intake more exercise equals weight loss…

My body thinks my throat has been cut, no fatty food or beer at all….

Keep going Jo Jo.

Live John xxxx
