    Hi Heidi
    Glad you are feeling better. Yes you will feel hungry, so you need to stick to rules you have been given. Don’t move on to solids early as you will stretch your pouch. You won’t get any restriction until you start to get fills. So meantime stick at it, think of what you have come through with the surgery etc. Not to mention the cost. Keep your chin up and keep posting.
    Love Rosie x

    Well said John. Know the feeling. We don’t need alcohol, cigs to survive but we do need to eat unfortunately.
    We will just keep our chins up continue or journeys and ignore the idiots who speak without thinking. Lol

    Hi Sunset
    Glad you are feeling good and all went well. On you question they use the measure of 100grams as a portion guide. If 100grams has 5grams of sugar then it is low and safe to eat. If you only eat say 25grams of this item then the sugar would be 1.25grams. It is not wise to eat anything with 20grams of sugar per 100grams as this is high in sugar content even if you take a small portion. The calorie intake will be high on any thing with high sugar or fat contents, which will slow your weight loss, reduce your food allowance and cause vitamin deficiencies . Hope this answers your question.

    OMG…. The day is almost here. I haven’t had much time to myself the last couple of days. I guess that’s the mother in me…… Been washing, ironing, shopping for everyone else, generally making my house straight. Even writing my hubby a list of what child does what, and when they need to be somewhere, when they get home… Etc etc……..( I can hear some of you ladies laughing,) but you know how it is….

    Been doing a little cooking for myself, all in little ramikins in the freezer….i’m now going to pack a bag for the hosp, and take a very long hot bath….

    I’m sure i will have my wobble at some point, but i’ve learnt from all of you, who have walked this path before me….. It is normal…..

    Thank you all for helping me with this journey so far. I pray i will be as successfull as many of you… And i’m sure i’ll need more help over the next few weeks too….. So get ready, (john, nettie)….. Lol

    Once again thank you.
    Heidi.

    Good luck for tomorrow heidi. This is the start of a new life. Look forward to hearing your success story. Love Rosie x

    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 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 Ruby
    Sorry thought you had band not bypass. It is possible to over eat with bypass I read you can stretch your pouch so still look at calorie intake. Don’t know what they recommend for bypass daily limit.

    Hi Ruby
    Well done on your progress so far. Remember band patients loss weight slower than bypass. Think positive even if you lose 1lb a week that’s 52lbs a year nearly 4stones. It’s better to lose slowly as it will stay off longer. Remember we have to work at it the band is only a tool, trust me I have nearly 4 year of it. I was told yesterday at my check up to use a side plate and aim for 800 calories a day, so there goes my chocolate bars lol. Keep your chin up and keep smiling.

    Hi Nettie
    Try to stay focused, don’t eat to much. When is your next fill? I always get mine 4-6weeks apart. You will find it gets tighter for longer as you get nearer your correct restriction. Have had a good day today, only been sick once, hope this continues, have hospital on Thursday. Was going to ask for some fluid out, but not so sure now. Keep in touch.
