I struggled for past 20 years with weight gain after I quit smoking. Gave one thing up that I loved, yes loved smoking (bad, bad I know) only to then gain weight, also bad. I tried every diet imaginable, all protein liquid drinks, Slimfast (ICK!) Coffee Bean Extract pills, Atkins, MEDIFAST, just like Oprah and gained it all back. Then, last but not least, the wonderful miracle pill of all pills "Phen Fen" that damaged my heart-valve. That did it! I Got my band July 25, 2012. First conservative fill will be right after Labor Day. All went well on that. But then came a fourteen day European cruise. Did I gain weight? No! I actually lost three pounds on vacation! But, today on December 2 I am happy happy happy to report I'm down 24.5 Lbs. so just under 4 months I think I did great. Hope I can do half as good as my weight drops. I need to loose about a hundred pounds all totalled and have dropped a quarter to that fat I was hauling around
