    Hi all

    I’ve only been banded a couple of weeks and keep reading about reaching your sweet spot. Can someone please tell me what this is and how will I know when I have reached it. Thanks.

    Your sweet spot is essentially having the ‘prefect’ restriction in your band when you eat just enough to lose weight. This is when your band truly starts to work! You obviously always need to make the right food choices, but the band restricts you enough to really make a difference! Can take numerous fills, and sadly a few people do not reach their sweet spots, but for most people you can expect probably 3-6 fills (maybe a year to 18 months) before you get there. Some people reach this much quicker, but I think that about 4-5 fills is average.

    Hope this helps.



    Hi Lynn,

    A sweet spot is somthing that is reached when your band is filled to just the right level, it often takes a few fills to get it there….don’t worry about it too much right now, you are just healing at the moment, not due for your first fill for some weeks.

    hope this helps


    Thank you very much for your replies. Stacey – judging by your photos I hope I do as well as you have. I’ve got my first 3 fills booked in for July, Aug and Sep so will look forward to really working with my band.
