chickenfarmer Posted February 22, 2006 Report Share Posted February 22, 2006 Hi all, When I was banded in November I weighed 195 (I am 5'3"). Today all these months later I weigh 183. I am hungry. I had my first fill early January. It was good at first. Now I can again eat anything and it seems to me way too much quantity before I get a stop signal...which for me is shoulder pain or hiccups usually. I have had one PB....because I tried some french fries at a fast food joint to see what would happen. UGH. I know one thing I am doing wrong is drinking after I eat. How do you get used to NOT drinking with food????? I am going to get another fill and I hope that restriction will help me make better choices. I feel like a total failure because its like I don't even have a band at all. I haven't lost....I can eat what I want with NO problems.....VERY depressing. I am sorry to be such a whiner.....but, I fly 6 hours to get to TJ....it is a long, expensive trip.....and some days I feel like I have thrown away all this money. I know it is MY fault and not the band or the dr.....but, still I can't believe my pathetic results. Thanks for listening. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
