Contemplating a break

In 8.5 months, I've had 14 lap band adjustments.

That's a lot.

And I think I need a little break.


More than a few times, you all have told me that my band is too tight and I'll do better if I'm a little looser.

So I'm going to test this. I'm going to cancel my next appointment and make one for later. Wish me luck!!!


  1. I totally agree with this method! You will rock it! I have been too tight before and it leads to eating all of the wrong things and not being satisfied! You can do this:)

  2. Miss Lorie is right -- and best of luck with the break. Getting the right level makes the weight come off so much easier!

  3. This makes me happy to read... I worry about you my friend, not being about to eat for weeks on end at times... Good Luck I am sure it will help.. You know how to reach me if you get frusterated and need to vent..LOL :)

  4. What are you at on your band, just curious.

    1. In February I had 7.2 CC's, I've had at least 1 CC added since then, so I am not sure honestly. My PA always measures how much is there total, but my surgeon does not, and he's been doing adjustments since my PA is pregnant and can't be in the room with the fluoro machine.

  5. Ahhh I see. I am at 8.9 I believe now and finally have the restriction I need...It has been a long 2.5 years for me.
