    funky_monkey800 reacted to Julie norton in Who has had the band? Pros? Cons? Successful? Complications?   
    Many of us are successful with banding
    . Least invasive and returnable
    I’m 12 years in and still living a wls life.
    Lots of us left due to such negative and loud feedback from those who did not have luck ( for many reasons)
    Some of us stick around....

    Sorry for the late reply....i would definitely go back to the basics....when i get off track i usually do a pouch reset (i have the band obviously,but have found this to be helpful)

    And count calories.
    The thing that really helps...is looking at old pics....i dont want the old me back...lol

    funky_monkey800 got a reaction from amithistrose in tightening loose skin   
    I still have flabby skin....i lost slowly, and exercise daily. Mainly focusing on muscle building with some cardio. I have also tried every fad out there to try to tighten it up...sadly for me i think only winning the lottery will cure this jiggle🤣🤣🤣that way i can get surgery.

    The more I eat, the more often I eat, and the crappier I eat, the more I CAN eat and the more I WANT to eat. It's due to conditioning your brain for reward and engaging the hedonic pleasure center, but also because of blood sugar and insulin rollercoasters.

    I think it was eating and partying. Go back to your rules of the Forever Plan and observe them strictly. Cut back on carbs temporarily and get your Water in. Give it 4 days and you should begin to feel it again...

    I'm down 55lbs since surgery 3 months ago and definitely noticing sagging and softness.
    I'm wearing a new, VERY tight compression shirt today and my organs hurt and I think it's causing nerve damage. But I keep getting compliments, so 🤷‍♂️!

    You already answered your own question. It's usually seen as polite to offer food. Unless you have the impression that people try to actively sabotage you it's nothing to rant about.
    I often offer some food (ProudGrammy called it "goodies", lol) myself. I don't mind though if people decline. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't, depending on what I offer and at what time of day.
    As much as some people on here might not like it but "food" brings people together since people exist.

    Why does everyone feel like they have to offer me food ....I'm a grown woman and I'm not 5yrs old....I understand that they are just being nice...but if I am hungry I will eat😐 I will sit over here and enjoy my Protein Shake and tuna salad.
    Its hard enough dodging the office cupcakes and donuts...lol
    Ok I'm done-

    nice to see you again☺️
    a couple of OP have also offered me "extra" food - esp. goodies. Some peep might think their
    being nice by pushing the food. not true, but their thoughts
    Orrrrr, some people want YOU to eat because they are heavy - and they want company with
    their eating

    LOL same! It's usually people that aren't that close to me and don't know about my surgery. They'll be like FINISH YOUR food or eat this and eat that. If I say that I can't because I'm on a diet they'll keep nagging and telling me to take a break and forget about my diet for they day. Even if I did want to listen to them, I cant! ALL THAT FOOD WON'T FIT! but they don't know that so to a lot of people i'm the diet freak that won't even eat half a bagel 🤦‍♀️ oh well...
