    6 Simple Ways to Gain Your Weight Back

    For me, not keeping my brain chemistry straight. Everytime my depression or anxiety starts kicking my butt my eating goes off the rails completely. Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Calling all vets- where are you

    Looks like I first got on here in 2013. Just recently downloaded the app. Lapband since 2002. Very happy with results, no side effects. Would love to chat with some fellow veterans of WLS. Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

    What foods do you have to avoid with the Lapband?

    For me, really just raw or cooked broccoli and kale. I can eat almost anything else.

    ⚡️ Air Fryer ⚡️

    I like air fried tofu (just marinaded in soy sauce and garlic) although it might not be good for those with recent surgeries. But I'm 19 years out. Lol. It can be chewy.

    Burning Starving Sensation

    I have that but thought it was just a side effect of my pregnancy many years ago. I feel really nauseous if I don't eat in addition to the burning feeling. Now I try to keep a small snack with me.

    My first surgeversary!

    OMG, you look awesome!!! Congrats on your success!
  11. 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!

    Any DFW Support Groups?

    I live where Dallas, Cedar Hill, and Duncanville meet but am willing to drive a while if I need to. Do you guys know of any meetings in DFW area? Thanks in advance.

    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!

    Anyone Use Daily Burn?

    I work from home so this looks like a great thing to do during lunch. I know I would have to start back at the beginner phase. Any reviews-good or bad?
