I got to 10% weight loss today at 97.7kg!! WooHoo! I was getting a little frustrated cos the scales weren't moving for a good few weeks and was wondering what was going on.

To be honest, I'm really happy with my level of restriction. It is definitely there and I know that when I push the boundries, my friend doesn't let me push them too far. I just need to make the right food choices. Anything that Melts or Dissolves will slip through the band... end of story. You don't see salad, vegetables and meat melting do you?? I know I'm not drinking enough water either.. but that's a whole other story. I've heard too many stories about stretching the band because people drank water too soon after they ate which meant that the water stretched the little tummy pouch. Since I eat every 2 hours, that doesn't give me alot of time inbetween to drink... and since I feel full most of the time, I'm not sure when a good time to drink is! I usually drink the most in the morning when I know the tummy pouch is empty and just before bed to flush it out.

Anyhoo, I am totally over the moon about my weight loss this morning... :) Once I hit 96kg I'll be down 20kg since my heaviest weight, then under 95kg (closer to 90 than to 100!) and then 93.6kg will see me as 15kg lost since the banding. Slowly but surely. 500g/week weight loss, I'm happy!

Hi Erika,

Just wanted to comment on your question from your July 5 post about the first few mouthfuls getting stuck.. I too have difficulty with the first few mouthfuls when eating a meal. After the first couple go down which sometimes can take a while which out with friends can be a little awkard (no one knows I have a band only hubbie) then I can eat normally...well slowly but not such a long break between bites.

I have been thinking of maybe trying to eat a little b4 going to dinner to try to fix that...who knows? Congrats on your loss!!..Midijola
