My First Adjustment for my LapBand

 Unrated
Friday, April 16, 2010 at 9:39 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
Today was the first time to get a fill in my band.  I had surgery on March 11th.  I have a 10 cc band and it is filled to 6cc.

For those who don't know what I am talking about. Lap Band is a weight loss surgery.  The Doctor puts a band around the top portion of the stomach, creating a small pouch the size of your thumb.  This band can be filled with saline to tighten the opening to the lower stomach.  There is a small tube that connects the band to a port (this is where the  doctor inserts the saline).  The tighter the band the fuller you feel longer....therefore eat less and lose weight.  I am only able to eat about 1 cup of food at a time....3 meals a day.  I consume about 700-800 calories.

I have reached my first weight goal!!!!  I was 272 pounds in August 2009 at the beginning of this journey.  At surgery I was 242....today I am at 220!!!!  As I continue to add exercise and keep my food in check I will lose!!

If anyone is interested here is the sight for lap band....  Lapband.com

I am so happy with where I am going and never want to go back!
