    I’ve been doing really well. Been having liquids for 2 weeks and found it really easy.

    The minute I’m told I can move onto puree my body (or head) decides it’s really hungry and I want to eat everything in the fridge. I’m trying my best not to but I feel I could eat for England.

    Did anyone else feel like this? Is it normal? Will it go away?

    Maybe it’ bandster hell kicking in. I suppose it’s that inbetween time of the stomach being swollen and now being healed and 5 weeks before the first fill.

    I think I’ll have to go to bed soon to get out of the way of temptation.

    I can remember the time between having my band op and having my first fill very well, I remember one night eating a whole pizza and asking myself if I’d really had the op!!! I had my first fill at 6 weeks you need to use will power alone for a while coming up to that first fill and maybe for a while after as well until you get more restriction, I tell you something though I’d kill for a slice of pizza now but there is no way that baby would go down so wouldn’t even attempt it! Good luck.

    Do you ever get a sharp pain in the back, under your shoulder blade. Is that the band’s way of saying I’ve eaten too much?

    Yes in the early days I used to feel it in my back but now its in my chest be aware of it though as gall bladder probs can sometimes give you a pain that goes through to your back.

    I know what you mean, I never really had the temptation to eat for england but the way I got around it was to have a treat at the weekend. Was really discplined in the week. That way your head thinks your not starving yourself or not being able to have nice things. it worked for me as I justworked to ensure that I just maintained he weight loss after surgery. I agree going to bed helps keep temptation out the way, thats what I dod or kept myself busy. Xxxx

    keep goint it is all worth it as you get on them scales and see the weight decreasing xx

    Fantastic advice Sam. We have ‘treat’ day in our house too – a Saturday (to coincide with football!) Funnily enough though, my treats now include things like luxury yoghurts or exotic fruits instead of a family bar of whole nut and a box of french fancies to myself!! Like you say, if you have the odd treat you don’t feel like you are being ‘punished’.
