  1. I have been banded over 13 years and have kept off over 100 pounds. I was currently back up 30 pounds due to slipping back into bad habits and a new very sedentary job but have already lost 7 again. I love this thing!

    I find that for me if I just listen to my band and try to follow the rules I do fine. I am very comfortable at a BMI of 27 and this is what I am aiming for again.

    I still want to lose like 25 pounds but I know that with my band's help I can do it!

  2. I second the idea of going online. I'm 43 and about a year ago met a great guy online. He knows about my band and is fine with my saggy skin. Lol. He can eat everything he sees and not gain weight but hey that is my burden to bear. There is hope to still find love at our age! We're at our peak remember!

  3. Hi everyone.

    I recently found the forum again after some time away. I've had my band for 12 years and did a good job of maintaining a BMI of about 27 (still overweight but not obese) until this past 6 months.

    My total loss was 134 pounds but I have gained back about 30 pounds since January. I've been very stressed out with work, a pending divorce, new relationship and a son who is having issues in school and I basically found myself eating too much and the wrong foods.

    I finally got the nerve to get my first fill in about 7 years. I was really nervous. I only ended up getting 0.2 added to my band but my hunger and general interest in food has gone way down! I am so looking forward to getting back to that weight where I felt and looked so much better.

    Well just checking in and saying that it's never too late to get back on track.

    Knowing a seat belt in any car will fit me.
