Day 48 - Post Banding

Hi all,

Hope all is well in your parts of the universe! Reg has been keeping busy and out of trouble for the most part. My daughter is back but still causing trouble and the weight loss has slowed, but still going in the right direction!

I have my first fill scheduled this Tuesday and they reckon that the "real" weight loss starts from here on in..... bring it on I say! The band (and me) have both been behaving well with only a few "spews" in the last couple of weeks, with each involving me not chewing well enough and rushing my food. So far I am lucky there's nothing I really can't eat! And I have tried most of the "healthy foods" which is great.... I only have a smaller serving these days.

I'm down to 115kg from 140 so that's a nice 25kg drop (14kg Optifast pre operation and 11kg post op) and I'm hoping from next Tueday the weight loss slow down of the last couple of weeks will be a thing of the past.

During my life I've met many famous people and Ray Martin is just one of them! see below for a picture of Ray and I from a few years back.

Anyway until next time....... love Reggy xxxx

Yeah you can almost think of the band as the reverse to gastric bypass......bypass patients loose a lot at the start and then it slows down.....for bandsters it is slow to start and then speeds up a bit! You should be pleased as you begin to get your fills. Don't forget though it may take 3 or 4 before you feel like they are really starting to do anything for you. Don't get discouraged!
