Thank you both for your replies. I’m so relieved that we are all going through the same experience as that kinda tells me that maybe this is normal!!!! I made friends with a lady when I was in hospital who had her band fitted the same day as me and she is in the same situation as us.

Maybe the 3rd fill is the key to it all as we really should feel quite restricted by then and start to lose weight again. When I spoke with my Specialist Nurse at my second band fill she said that as I have already lost alot of weight so I could be going through a plateau stage. (I lost 4 stone pre-op & 12lbs post-op).

I know the band is working, as when I have lost this amount of weight in the past I have got stuck in a plateau for weeks & weeks and always given up as the constant hunger has got the better of me when I was no longer losing weight. At least with the restriction I now have, I am neither gaining weight or constantly fighting the hunger. Oh misery……the nights I have gone to bed early and miserable just to stop myself from eating in the hope that tomorrow the plateau will have past.

It’s because of this that I feel close to finding my “sweet spot” and I’m hoping the 3rd fill on 12 July will hit the spot so to speak. I keep on talking myself into feeling optimistic and positive as it’s just so easy to get down in the dumps when we stop losing isn’t it?

Please post on this thread again when you have had your 3rd fills and let me know how you are getting on. I will be soooooooooo happy to hear from you both again. We’ll get through this together.

Love Gill xx
