Lolli, just found your blog, i was banded on oct 25th, and what you have written could have come straight out of my mouth! I'm in exactly the same position, lost 19lbs from pre-op appt until i started mushies...i use mfp to track every morsel that goes in and i'm around 800 cals a day, 60g protein. Walking an hour everyday...but the scale refuses to drop. I will say though, my clothes are fitting so much better. I know if I would have taken measurements I would be seeing a difference. I am not scheduled for my first fill until 12/12 so i'll be anxious to hear how yours went. Good Luck!
