    Knowing what you know now would you....

    Lately I've been struggling with this question a lot. After getting the band, wow, three years ago next May, I lost a lot of weight and fairly fast, although the last, oh year and a half, I've been dealing with so much depression and stress, haven't gone to the doctors at all, no follow ups or anything after the first year, I've been eating like crazy and hardly working out at all after a devestating knee injury that prevents me from doing almost any cardio. Luckily, I have only gained maybe 10 pounds back, bringing my total weight loss in 2 1/2 years to about 45 pounds or so. I'm not sure whats really causing all of this, I worry that I've totally destroyed my band, some days I can eat an entire pizza, other days three small bites of chicken will make me "slime" for an hour. I know I need to get checked out desperately, but I'm so terrified of actually having my failure out there in front of my doctor (who I haven't seen in forever and probably thinks I moved or died or something.) Getting the lapband so young, I know that I really wasn't ready or perhaps it was the wrong choice for me. I still eat, out of boredom, depression, and just simply that I love food and lots of it. I know I'm stupid for ruining this opportunity, I'm such an "avoider."

    NSV Thread for the May Bandsters!

    I bought new jeans yesterday because all my pants are falling off me. The pair I ended up getting are Levi's skinny jeans in a size 13! Thats right, juniors sizes! The last time I fit into juniors sizes I was probably in 9th grade. I was so excited, even though they wern't cheap. Woo!
  11. I am stuck. Down about 49 and happy with it, but would love 103. lol I am so proud of all of your accomplishments. Is your new beau someone that knew the old you? Don't work too hard. Our second child is doing the exact same thing as you, 2 jobs, school, man, and we just moved. I hope neither of you ever regret doing that. Don't burn the candle at both ends as they say. I am glad you are back, even if just for a fleeting moment. Take care-Donita

  12. Way to go little one!

  13. you've done such a good job so far! thanks for updating!

    I am scheduled for May

    Hey everyone! Its been forever since I've been on here, busy busy busy with school and 2 jobs and an ever growing social life, I can't complain though, I'm down 55 pounds and feel more comfortable with myself than I ever have. I still have about 50 more to go before I am at goal, but I'm a little more than halfway there and only about 6 months out, yay!
