  1. Happy 36th Birthday msdimples29!

  2. I had my daugther last January, and I had no problems with the band. I labored for 26 hours and pushed for almost 2 and my band is still in tact...hope this helps, and good luck to you.:crying:

    What's A Girl To Do???

    I can't seem to get any breakfast down at all. I usually just drink a little juice and take my vitamins. I have soup or a small salad for lunch, and dinner is usually chicken or fish with salad. I snack a little in between some days, but mostly nothing. I have been walking every other day for the last 2 months, and I started Taebo 2 weeks ago. I think I may not be eating enough.

    What's A Girl To Do???

    Hello everyone!! It has been a while since I have been here, but it's good to be back. I have been banded for 2 years and 3 months. I originally lost 110 lbs. I became Pregnant in April of '06 and I have a beautiful 3 1/2 month old daughter. Well during my pregnancy, I had almost all of my fill removed(I WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!!!), and I gained 60 lbs during my pregnancy. I have lost 25 lbs, but I have been at a stand still for the last month. I don't know what to do. I lost my weight pretty quickly the first time around, but now I can't seem to get going. My band is filled pretty tight, but the weight just isn't coming off...I really need to get this weight off!! Does anyone have any experience with having a baby and not being able to lose the weight. Any input would be helpful. Thanks.
  5. Dr. Maese's office also takes Medicaid. His # is 214-234-0330. His office is in Dallas, and he also has one in Ennis Texas. Hopes this helps.

    3 months since surgery and still NO period

    Hi, I had my surgery in Feb and didn't get a period until June, so it is very normal for you to miss a few. You will be fine. :eek:

  14. Hello, My name is Lillie. I have been a member for about eight months. I was banded in February and I have lost 80 lbs. My husband and I want to start having kids really soon. Does anyone have any views or experience on this? I want to get pregnant maybe by the end of the year. Is this good or not? I have talked to my doctor, but would like to hear first hand experience if possible. Thanks!!
