  2. I did true results in Austin August 2011. I am down 90 pounds. I know true results has a support group that meets once a month. I have had a great experience with True Results. Good luck on your surgery

    Why Would't The Band Work?

    Having the band is work. If you have not worked thru any food issues you have the band will not work. i hear things like i paid to much to be on a diet. You will be on a diet and will have to follow it for sucess. Some people lose weight slower and because they have the band think the weight is going to fall off. Weight doesnt come off fast for some with the band. I think because the weight loss is slow for some, people give up on the band. I track every calorie i eat and work out 4x a week i am losing a 1 to 2 pounds a week. I still have head hungry issues but i am very aware now when/what i eat.
