Hi all,

Not sure you can compare band size and fills as we are all Individuals, but it’s can be strange with a band, I have 6.5 mL in a 14mL band. Get restriction some days and less other days. I usually eat weatabix in the an soup and salad for lunch, then a small tea mince or some curry and rice and I am done. However some days I eat took quick or bad foods ie breads and fried stuff and it gets stuck and need to stop or make myself sick. Other days like today I managed to eat out and had lasagne it was sloppy but I ate it all. I worry about the random nature of restriction do u think this is due to stretching of the pouch or just hydration status and what u are eating??? An doing ok 4.5 stone down in 6 months, want to shift another 3 stone so would be 12 stone and on target so hopefully within a year ?? It’s interesting how different everyones experience is. John hope u get ur band sorted soon and we can then compare notes theres are only a fe of us blokes on here with bands!
