I was banded in march of 2008. And right away I lost a bunch of weight. I did not keep it off long. I found out how to cheat the band and did. I started abusing the band a lot and then on a regular basis. I used eating as a coping mechanism to deal with tough stuff in my life. So as of Feb of 2015 I am back to working the program. I am also working on a faith based program that helps deal with the 'why' of binge eating, by replacing food with keeping your eyes on Jesus Christ as your strength an hope. I look forward to making friends here as well.
