    Amylynns, I'm wishing you a smooth recovery. I know you will find the strength to do what you feel you need to do to get in the healthiest form you need to be in. I am sorry you have been through so much, and I hope the road ahead will be easier and more comfortable for you.
  2. Update: 4/26/13 -- Happy at 175 lbs.

  3. I have been absent a while because I'm enjoying life finally! Update: April 2013, my band is still hard work, but I'm doing well and currently at 175 lbs. I am not focused on weight loss anymore. I am more focused on getting enough nutrition. I deal with anemia and occasional vomiting still.

  4. Hello! I've been banded for almost 4 1/2 years now with no complications. That's not to say that my port doesn't rub me the wrong way now that there is not a whole lot of fat to cushion it anymore! I still have moments when I have to vomit. It's still a lot of hard work and struggles at times, but I have had a smooth ride with my band.

    Hello? Anybody still here? I can't believe it has been four years for all of us! Happy Bandiversary everybody! I am doing very well at 190 pounds -- wearing Size 12 dresses. I feel great...it's a long, long way since November of 2008 when I was 280 and a size 24. I've struggled with nutrition, but I'm trying really hard to eat the best I can. I hope everybody is doing well. Take care!
  8. I haven't been on here lately, but I'm still around. I was just thinking about you the other day! How are you doing?? :) It's so nice to hear from you!

    Any old timers still around?

    Hi! I received an e-mail about this thread. I suppose it has been a while since I've been active on the site here. Hello everybody!

    Thank you so much, ladies! You are awesome.
  11. Thanks for the nice photo comment! I hope your pre-surgery days pass quickly so you can get to the next steps. :)

  12. Oh, I'm so terrible at checking profile posts. I'm sorry I didn't see a message from you in April! How is your summer going so far? :)

  13. How are you??!!! I hope everything is going great for you. :)

  14. Updates: April 7, 2010 -- I'm down to 213!


    I've been through hell with eating though... had so much trouble vomiting and with reflux. I'm starting to get balanced again now that I've had a few unfills. I can eat again, and I'm exercising again. I'm looking forward to summer.

    Hi, Notorious Novembers!! It's been ages since I've visited, but I wanted to post an update. I'm currently at 213! I had a lot of trouble for a while, but after a few adjustments, slight unfills, I am able to eat comfortably again and am actually making progress now. I hope everybody is doing great!! Take care! :thumbdown:

    Notorious Novembers 1 Year Bandaversarry

    Happy Bandaversary everybody! I celebrated mine on November 4th, and had my appointment that day too. I haven't made much progress in the recent months, but recognize that is my own fault. I am slack on my exercise and have a bad addiction to strawberried-peanut-butter M&Ms of late. lol I am happy to say though that I have not put weight back on...just haven't progressed losing more. I am happy though because I am healthier now than I was a year ago. I can run up the stairs. I feel good in my clothing. I'm confident I will continue to lose weight and not put any back on. I did have many ups and downs -- once was too tight and had to let some out.... dealt with some irritated stomach and reflux for a while too that had me sick often, but Prilosec and eating more carefully have helped me keep the vomiting under control. It's been good. Looking back, I would still do this again, otherwise a year would have passed, and I'd be just as heavy as I used to be. Thanks everybody for your strength and support. I wish you all much more success during Year 2!!

    I hate this, I really do....

    I really don't want to extend this thread any further, but I think there is something we can all take away from this string of messages that is not negative. I don't think one single person here was anything other than sympathetic and supportive. Everybody listened, some offered great tips and advice, some offered deep concern and maybe even prayers. When you read a post like the original one, you respond in the best way you feel will offer comfort or help to the person posting. Even if the original poster did not like the way the thread continued, who knows, the advice given could very well have helped someone else who was reading along and had similar questions. So not all is lost here. You did the best you could, and it was nice of you to offer your time and concern. Take care, everybody!
