    Not losing very depressed

    Ok first off stop beating yourself up about not losing more weight you've lost 20 pounds, second are you writing down everything your eating? third are you getting in at least 64 oz of water and 65-85 grams of protien??? I have lost about 103 pounds in about 14 months I too get down and depressed when I see other people like my friend who's lost 135 in 9 months. Everyone is different and loses at a different rate. How many fills have you had? I would start with making sure you don't need a fill, then I would either do liquids for 2 days or the 5 day pouch test to jump start weight loss again, then I would put myself on a 1000-1200 calorie diet and write down everything I put in my mouth whether it is a piece of candy or gum to what you drink. sometimes I don't realize how much I actually eat until I started writing it down. when I say that my meals consisted of mostly carbs I had to charge what I ate around. I am not try to depress you further because I've been there and I'm trying to help. ps you may want to set up an appt with an nutrionist just to see where you're at. btw what was your start current and goal weight? if you have any further question you can email on this site. p.s I have also found two mentour buddies on this site that helps keep us accountable for our actions. I hope this helps

    results not typical

    yeah i know 4 other people who have lost 100# in 6-7 months i also know one who has lost 105 in 5 months and all of them are lapband patients. dont worry about what people say as long as you and your surgeon know what you had is all that matters. congrats.
