I have a lapband.  I have had it since 2008.  I have only had about four fills.  One was very tight because I ask the doctor to make it tight.  I guess it is my fault I have only lost a little weight.  I wanted this to work.. It seems like my body is resistant to losing weight and it makes me depressed.  I know most of you are very successful and I am so happy for you.  I was small all my life.  I did the adkins diet.  The genes in my family makes for large people.  I hate it.
