    Thanks so much I do tend to forget that losing and keeping 21 pounds off is an accomplishment it just seems like am bad cause I can't get past that point. I need to stop punishing myself and be proud of what I have done so far and keep focused on continued wieght loss.

    That sounds good I am also gonna try my best to drink mostly water instead of mostly other things like pop. I am also trying the increase in protien and I just started the Slimin6 exercise program today. Good luck girls, we can do it.

    Thanks so much for everyones replies. I really appreciate it.
  9. I seem to be at the weight that my body prefers. I was this weight after my first child and my second. I can manage to get to 199 or even 198 but then the next day or so I am back at 200 or 201. I know that I have to drink more water and to exercise. I got another fill a couple months ago thinking might jump start me but no such luck. I have started exercising but I don't how often I should be to see weight lose. If I don't get enough protien could that be a problem. I have not been drinking protien shakes lately. Any other tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    How do I take Capsule supplements?

    I have been having the same questions about pills. I have actually been fearful of taking pills for this reason. Now I know that I can take them but slower then usual just like with eating. Thanks some much Jazzy for your knowledge and advise.

    Back on Track!!

    That's great I love hearing about your progress. It makes me feel like it really is possible to lose all the weight I have put on over the years. You look great in your bikini already, way to go.

    My 1st fill

    I have scheduled my first fill for Aug 22nd. I am very excited for the next step in the lapband process. I have been lossing weight but it has been kind of slow. I still can eat a good amount but no where near what I ate pre surg and not as often. Any suggestions or tips or just what I might experience with my first fill?
  13. Hi Everyone After surgery ( two weeks ago), I had some pain in my stomach which I was told it was normal. Now two weeks later, it feels a little better but I noticed that the main incision is really hard and is the only one that remains sore. anyone else have this problem?
  14. Hi everyone I live around the portland area and will be traveling down to salem to get my fills. I was wondering if anyone has used them and how they where like. I hope they are as good as the doctors and nursing staff when I get banned. I would love to meet others in the oregon that have been banded. Amy
