We've included a transcript below to help:

Lisa tells us how she's starting to get the feeling of being hungry back again, the struggles she's faced so far, and how she's feeling 10 weeks on from her gastric band surgery.

Hi everybody, so I'm now 10 weeks post op and I kind of feel like I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but honestly things are just going so well. I've just had no issues whatsoever yeah, there's literally nothing that I can say that's not good about this experience for me  so far. 

Things have just been absolutely amazing and the only thing that's probably, maybe creeping up with little issue at the minute will be my appetite. It's starting to come back a little bit more and the portion sizes that I'm eating, they're not really filling me up as much, so  obviously I'm quite eager to get my second fill. That's due within the next few weeks. If you've seen you've seen my last video , you'll know that I've currently got 3.5ml in a 10ml band. I'm not sure what it will go up to, I really couldn't say. I don't know, it would depend on what the nurse says when I get there, but yeah it's just been fantastic it is been really really good and, you know, I'm kind of... I don't know,  it's just really hard to explain, I didn't think it was going be this straight forward I really didn't because I've seen a lot of things, you know, before actually going for the surgery and you do, you know, you do your homework and you hear some stories and some of them, they just  put you off for life. I thought, well, you know, each person is different and I'm just gonna do what's good for me, you know. And there's been times where I've been anxious, like I said last time about flying, that was fine, going back to work, that was fine, you know, you know having  the fill in the first place, that was fine. Everything's been really good and I think as long as you stick to you know, what it is that you're supposed to be doing, you kind of don't rear off, then I think you gonna be absolutely fine.

I've been really really good, you know, a lot of willpower has been needed. Cautions at the minute. I aim to keep my three meals a day under 1100 calories, you know if I'm under there I'm  happy. Obviously I am still eating a lot of fruit and vegetables you know they're 'zero calories' aren't they so, I think that's the thing that's probably kind of stacking me up, you know keeping me full. But yeah, as I said it is my appetite is creeping back a bit so I'm just  being careful you know. I am still treating myself, I do still have you, the little fun size packs of buttons, but it's going really really well. Again you know I can see a loss now which I'm really really happy about. So yeah I mean this is only 10 weeks so I'm really intrigued to see  what the next 10 weeks are going to be like. I'm really really glad that I came on this journey and I would seriously recommend it to anybody else.
