  1. Happy 52nd Birthday ld0008!

  2. Happy 51st Birthday ld0008!

  3. IndioGirl - You look great. You are such an inspiration to me and probably many others. You give me the strength to get back on track. thank you so much for sharing. :smile2: Best Wishes to you. dolores
  4. Dr. Ehrlich is a compassionate, wonderful surgeon. I had my lap band in 2008 and have lost a lot of weight. Dr. Ehrlich and his office staff are great. thank you for everything, Dr. Ehrlich. Dolores
  5. Sadie, thank you for sharing with us. I want to get that book - heading to Barnes and Nobles tonight. I had my band surgery in March 2008 and lost 80 lbs but have put 20 back on. My goal is too lose 100 lbs. It seems when the band is tight, I lose but cannot eat healthly. So I take some fill out and I can eat more foods but put weight back on. I am really struggling with this because a part of me wants to keep it tight because I don't want to keep putting weight on and I want to lose more. It's all in your mind. I am so addicted to food and I need to get a handle on it. Hopefully, this book will help. thanks again and best wishes everyone. Dolores

    March Bandsters: MASTER THREAD

    hi March 2008 bandsters. I had my surgery March 3, 2008. i lost a total of 82 lbs but have put 19 lbs back on. I am falling back into bad habits of eating bad food choices. It's almost like I've forgotten that I have the band. so I'm pretty sad right now. I have to remember where i was and why i had the lapband in the first place. I am so happy for all of you that are sticking with it. I am going to get back on lapbandtalk.com and read yours posts to encourage myself to get back on track. thanks for listening. dolores

    March Bandsters: MASTER THREAD

    Hi all my fellow March bandsters. Can you believe it will be our year anniversary in a few months. I am having a rough time over the holidays - too much junk food around. I keep trying to tell myself to eat my Proteins, veggies first. Then I'll allow myself a little snack. How is everyone doing? I really have got to start exercising now. I thought I would have more energy once the weight started coming off but i don't - at least not yet. My New Year resolution is to start exercising. I am so glad I had the band done. I would have never lost this weight had I not had it done. Happy New Year to you all! Dolores
  10. I am happier and healthier. I have more energy. I am so glad I had the lap band done. I am not at goal yet but that's okay because I know for certain now that my weight will only go down. I am in a size 12 from a size 22. I have more confidence in everything I do. People treat me differently - they talk to me more. YEA! I love who I am. Thank God. Dolores
  11. I am very much interested in going to the conference. I live in CT so NYC is closer but would be willing to drive to NJ. I want to network with other lap banders. When is the conference scheduled for? thanks and please keep me posted.

    thanks CoachCher, that makes sense. It's probably time for a fill for me.

    Sharon - I think I'm sliding into the carb world also. I hate it because it makes me feel sluggish. anyhow, I'm happy for you that your getting back on track and documenting what your eating. I'm going to do that. Great job, keep it up. Dolores

    March Bandsters: MASTER THREAD

    Hi Fellow March Bandsters. I had a fill about 2 months ago and at that time it was tight. I dealt with it and ate very little very slowly. Now it seems like I am able to eat much more. I think the band loosens up over time. Either that or i get use to the tightness and eat more???? I don't know. I'm going to call my MD to get another fill but I'm concerned because sometimes now i get acid reflux at night and I don't want to make that worse. what do you think? does the band loosen up over time? thanks for your input and keep up the good work. Dolores

    Call Roto Rooter I'm stuck!!

    does the band loosen up over time. It seems like I am eating more than usual. I wonder if I should go for another fill. the last fill I got, i thought was tight but now I think it loosened up. is that possible?
