It's been almost a YEAR!!

One week from today will be exactly 1 year with my band!! I've been wishy washy about my goal weight all along. I've said between 135 & 145 is where I want to be. Today I weigh 150, i've been stuck here for about 2 months. I guess my goal weight is 140. With summer only a couple of months away, i'm going to increase my excercise to 5 days a week. This 10 lbs. should be gone in no time. My restriction has been great. Since day one I've only thrown up one time. It was my fault!! Took

2nd Fill 6/26/10

Went back to TJ for my 2nd fill last saturday 6/26. I now have a total of 8cc. Great restriction. When I went in, I felt NO restriction at all with the 5.5cc I already had. He actually had me go eat lunch at Applebees before I went back across the border to make sure I wasn't too full! They have great fish by the way!! I can eat good, about 1/2 of what I used to eat most of the time, sometimes less. A couple of days after that fill I ate about 6 bites of chicken at lunch, thought it was g

FIRST FILL 5/13/10

I was scheduled with my DR's office yesterday for my first fill. I did all the work before my surgery to make sure it was all covered and scheduled. I went in to see the band DR yesterday morning. He was very nice.......... then had additude because I went to TJ to get my band. My weight wasn't high enough to get it here! He was going to do my fill, but said because my insurance didn't approve it, they wouldn't cover my adjustments. He said it would cost about $400. (my mom see's a DR 10

1 Month & 5 Days Post Op~

Feeling Great!! Down 13 lbs, not bad. I only have 50 lbs to lose so this is a great start. First fill on 5/13 coming up quick. I'm not going back to OCC, my family doc referred me to the lapband doc here in the clinic I go to. They were more than willing to take care of all my after care. Got me in quickly, exactly when I need my 1st fill, and my insurance has to cover it with my $10 co pay!!! Best part. Eating has been good, no problems. I started my first morning with eggs, expecting

3 more days of liqiuds, i'm so excited. I feel great. The only thing I miss is spicy food. I eat alot of tomato soup and add tobasco, it's great! I'm down 11 lbs. today ~ that leaves me 39 more to go. No doubt i'll reach the 15% by my first fill. I'm so glad I went to OCC ~ i've had a few friends who went to a different clinic in TJ, 3 of the 5 have had to have their bands removed already, and had no success. 1 other is waiting for her insurance to approve removal, and there was 1 success
