    B-52 got a reaction from ☠carolinagirl☠ in Success or Failure "Who's to blame?"   
    Very well written, and I respect your "opinion"
    And people need to hear everyone's opinion.
    In my case, this has not been hard at all! After the first 6 months were out of the way, it became very simple and easy , for me.
    I too have lost all my weight, and I wake every morning thanking God I can face he day the same way any other skinny person can, not afraid of eating wrong, and not afraid of gaining weight.....
    I can't wait to face the day, with no fear....what can possibly happen?
    Like I said, everyone has their opinion, and that is mine....and that is what these boards are all about....people being banded and sharing their personal experiences....and people need to hear it all.
    You are correct to say people should not be so judgemental. People should only respond by sharing what their experiences have been.....period.
    Thank You

    B-52 got a reaction from jkevhack in Is it possible to not be eating enough   
    Keep in mind, you have to burn more calories than you take in...so if you consume 1000 calories per day, you would need to burn app. 1500 calories the same day. And that formula is for a weight loss of 1 lb per week....multiply the calories burned per day for more.....
    If you have trouble burning calories (lack of exercise, etc) then consume less.....
    I NEVER counted calories, let the band dictate portion sizes and I made wise food choices.......and paid very close attention to my protein and water intake to sustain my metabolism and vital organ functions............
    I have studied the "Starvation" mode very closely when I was first banded, and from a Physiology standpoint it makes perfect sense...for a NORMAL WEIGHT person....
    It does not take into effect overweight people have a lot of fat stored to get through many famines.....as a matter of fact I WANT my body to rely on that stored energy source........just get your protein so your body does not turn on other important things you don't want to loose.
    That's always been my philosopy, and my body fat % is now very, very low.....as far as metabolism, I have more than enough energy with some to spare...
    I read somewhere....If you need to eat to loose weight...then none of us would be fat...
    It's all about burning calories versus calories consumed...always has, always will be. And the band is there to stop us from consuming to many calories...

    Yes, I'm hooked also....it also kick started another weight loss for me which I did not think I had left in me.
    You should try the audio version. Plays your own music, and has audio prompts telling you when to jog and walk. If you use it on your I-pod, it has a video timer also.
    $1.99 for the app.

    people underestimate how important foot care is. I have had many skin problems, I go to a podiatrist every 3 months, and have seen a dermatologist on a regular basis.
    having lost the weight, my feet, for the most part are normal.
    I still go to the podiatrist......hey, if the insurance will pay for a pedicure performed by a expert....who am I to argue??
