Hi Gina, congratulations!
I have noticed one line that you wrote - you still can not believe it! I know that feeling and I think it stops me from loosing it. When people comment on my weight and tell me that I have loose some - I have a feeling that they dont see it right...because I cant believe it. Did you do some visualizations of yourself thin? How did you overcome it? I think if you cant "See it" - it cant happen. Any comment?
Also, I need your comment on my case. I did have Lap band at 15.09.2010.
Month later 15.10. 2009. I did loose around 15 pounds. They gave me the first fill - 2ml and the band is big to 11 ml. Doctor asked me to come 3 months later for check up. I gained around half of it - 7 pounds and he refused to fill me because he said he will reword me after I loose some weight. I have insisted but he refused saying that I will make my upper stomach bigger if he fills me and that the band will have to be removed than.
I am not sure am I right or not because in Euorpe its quite a new thing so I wolud like a comment from your personal experiance.
- that he should fill me up every month
- that the band has no purpose as it is empty
- they can take it out because there is no firkin point anyway
- if I could loose it by myself I would do it anyway
- i don’t think i would stretch the upper stomach if he filled me
He asked me to come in 6 weeks and I will be lucky if I don’t get some more pounds. I can eat whatever I like, in any quantity almost. (a little bit less, but a little!) If he refuses me again i will try to find another doctor to fill me every 4-6 weeks. That wolud be EXPENSIVE for me, but I dont see the point of all this if I dont do it. What wolud you do it if you were me?
Thank you for you comment :-)
And I have to give you congratulations once again! I am sure that world is now opened up to you! As you did that - you can do anything! Keep on !
