    band removal for the sleeve?

    i go to my surgeon's support group every month but i feel the people there tend to be very fake and saying the things the dr wants to hear and not being real. because to them all they ever talk about is the good things not the things that they struggle with ... and i will stick around i have been on this site for 3 years now so i'm not going anywhere

    band removal for the sleeve?

    thanks for the responses ... i do have an appt with my surgeon today for a fill i think i am gonna request to get an xray to make sure my band hasn't slipped or anything and take it from there... you are right it is just a tool I think too many times i depend on it to do more than it's supposed to. I think i just need a lot of encouragement and discipline to really get back at it again and not give up if things slow down again... and i certainly was not offended by your comments/... i appreciate the input

    band removal for the sleeve?

    well the first year i lost 100 lbs and since then i have been struggling to lose any more i was sticking to the plan and excercising for a long time but then i got discouraged and stopped trying as hard because the weight stopped coming off... i feel i can eat too much and have had to have a couple unfills as things kept getting stuck and i was throwing up a lot

    To tattoo or not?

    i got a tattoo it's a lotus flower with a butterfly to signify change i've lost over 100 lbs now and my life is completely different
  11. i am 2 years out now and haven't had any really bad problems the only thing is i do get stuck sometimes and had 1 unfill and one slight unfill but I am working on getting back on track so the weight can keep coming off

    Soooo confused.

    when i was in the mushy food part I didn't lose anything because right now it is about your body healing not losing weight... when you start eating real food is when it will start with the weight loss again. My nut says between 800 and 1000 and 1200 if you work out a lot. hope this helps a little!

    What Up Jersey!

    i had dr. pasquerella with that group at SOCH but he's no longer there I see dr Reich most of the time for fills, but sometimes the other dr's of that group... they are all great and the best of what they do !
