Oh yes, we are. Went to Doc today. He was very happy with my progress and we talked about what he called the "perfect place", probably what is called the sweet spot on this forum. I thought I was almost there, he agreed so I got .2ml fill. I think that will do it. OMG - this is good. I am track for 30kgs by mid November (my next goal before the big OS trip).

We are awesome Jan11 bandits.

Congratulations Westy. Well done.

I'm doing ok too and very close to the 80's now. Just want to be there. Had a few delays of late with trips away and my birthday, but this time next week I hope to be in the 80's.

Hi to all January Bandits



Today I have reached my 20 kgs Goal yay yay yay - 20 Kgs Gone - who would have believed it. I would never have lost that weight on my own. Gone from a size 22 to 18-16 depending on make. Need to have a T Tuck, going to see Surgeon soon



I hope everyone is travelling well



Lot of Love

West

Hi Everyone

Its been awhile moving etc and my trusty Computer had to go to God.

Lost 17 kilos since the start of my Journey. Having a few eating problems, still cannot find that sweet spot. Hungry sometimes and still can eat a fair amount of food. 7.8 mls in my band, how far can we go. I know I am close but maybe just a tad more in my band, back to surgeon in 2 weeks.

Hope everyone is doing well and losing heaps of weight.

Love to Everyone

So how are all the January '11 bandits going???? Haven't heard from some of you for a while now.

An update please......

My update: happy with weight loss so far. Have now got 5ml in my 10ml band and am happy with the restriction and feeling of fullness. Have had a couple of "stuck" moments, but nothing to worry about. So far so good, can't wait to get into the 80's which will hopefully happen by end of July.

Look forward to your update...

Hi Westy and fellow January bandits,

I'm going along ok too. Lost 12kgs and I'm pretty happy with that. I've got my next Dr's appt on 19/4/11 and am setting myself mini goals to achieve before the next appt. It keeps me on track. I've started at the gym and got a PT - and after 6 weeks of it, I am finally feeling fitter and enjoying it.
I've had a couple of of "stuck" moments - one on a plane (in the middle seat) with a piece of apple. I will never eat apple on a plane again! It had to come up so I excused myself, irritating my fellow passenger, but if he knew the alternative he would have not been so begrudging....

So it's all good for me. I am feeling in control again. First time for a long time. It is empowering. BGring on the next fill.....

Flo in Hobart.

Welcome to the other side, Kacey. Take slowly for the first few days. I promise it will get better. Now is about healing and feeling better. Sip your fluids slowly, and get all the rest you can. BUT don't forget to have a little walk around the house as well. Moving does help the shoulder tip pain, prevent DVTs, and makes you feel human again!

Onward and downwards from here!

Went to the post-op appt. today (4 week since op). I found out I have a 10ml band. I had my first fill - 2.5ml. Didn't hurt and I am a needle sook. He was really pleased with the weight loss to date (7kgs). I went home and graduated to casserole consistency. YAY! Was told to chew carefully and eat slowly. Had the best low fat lamb curry (1 cup of with a little rice). I can't tell you how good that was and it went down just fine. So far so good. I am also ok with diet coke and find it is good late arvo when I am starting to feel hungry. I am back for a further fill in a month.

It's all good ....

Hope it went well for Kacey today.

Westy, how goes - are you feeling any restriction yet?

Good on you Newme, I am sure a pt will get you on the fast track. Brave move!

Hi there fellow January Bandits,

I was done on 14/1/11. Have had no problems to date and have got my first post-op appt with the surgeon tomorrow and hopefully I'll get the first fill! I'm ready for it. I have started to gain control of the beast that is hunger now and feel like I'm winning. I've also really taken a huge step and made an appt at a gym to see a PT. I truly need to do this because I won't exercise otherwise. And boy do I need some conditioning. (understatement of the year....)
