    My band fill was a bit tight this time and I had a few episodes of being sick – I soon learnt that I had to water my food down a bit – anything stodgy was hard work.However, it has losened a bit now and it certainly got the weight coming off again as I had really slowed down. It’s not nice but I guess I almost needed a period of being strict again as bad habits were creeping in. it’s tempting to eat the bad stuff when not much will go down but I try to control my eating and reap the benefits of weight loss. Good luck X

    Thanks for that Vicki it’s always good to hear from others that have been through the same, I can bare it if it means the weight will come off and like you say it will losen a little in the next couple of weeks

    Heidi,

    Don’t panic my love, it’s just me adjusting to a new fill level, I was fine before but this one is taking a while to settle down but it will settle and if it doesn’t I’ll just have a bit of fluid removed, it has ot’s benefits I’ve lost much more this week than I have been.

    Hi All
    I had my check up yesterday and all is fine. X-rays etc all went well. Lost another 7lbs over last 5 weeks not a big loss but happy to be going down again. Sickness has settled down thank god. Did not get any more fills happy with where I am at. Plan now to work hard with the band. First change my plate to a side one, which h will make it look more full than over filling normal one. Also been told to aim for 800 calories a day and use them wisely i.e veg, meat first, potato last. Also told to give up bread which I can still eat no problem. Have been over filled in the past, to the point where damage to asophgus happened which resulted in all fluid removed, all weight regained and 4 months with no restriction. So here’s to a new start, just going to put the past 4 years behind me and try to remain positive. Thank you all for your support and its been a great help to log on and read all your comments. Thanks for listening.
    Love Rosie xx

    Hi rosie
    So pleased to see things are looking up for you. And so nice to read that dispite your past problems, you are still sounding positive .
    When you said 800 cals per day, it this the normal amount to follow after having the op ? My band is only 5 days away, and total number of cals was 1 of my questions.
    Keep smiling rosie, it’s a new start, and i wish you well.

    Good to hear how it went for you Rosie, was wondering, and that all sounds very positive, with lots of ideas and suggestions that should help. Great news the X-rays have not showed up any problems, and so glad you are not being sick as that is just horrible. Well done on the weight loss, a great achievement, and it pushes you nearer your goal weight. xx

    Hi Heidi
    Yes I have been told this is the max amount we should be eating with the band. It can be done if we choose our food and portion sizes carefully. Thanks for you support.

    Hi Rosie,

    It’s not too bad, the temporary restriction from the fill has worn off now so it’s will power and diet for the next 2 weeks but I’m still losing weight so thats the main thing.
