  1. Update: 4/26/13 -- Happy at 175 lbs.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Thanks for the nice photo comment! I hope your pre-surgery days pass quickly so you can get to the next steps. :)

  5. 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? :)

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

  7. 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.

  8. I don't receive notifications for page posts, so I'm slow at finding messages there, but so happy you wrote yesterday! HI! Have a good semester of school. I'm so glad to hear from you! **hugs**

  9. Hey! I love your new pictures! I'm glad you are feeling okay after your port revision. Sorry I was missing for a little bit. My family was visiting from California for a couple of weeks, and now we are all just settling back into a schedule with school starting today. I hope you are doing well! **hugs**

  17. Hi there!!!


    Thanks for the nice message on my profile. Sorry I didn't see it sooner. It's nice to meet a neighbor!


    To answer your question, Dr. Joel Winer here in York is a wonderful neurosurgeon. The orthopedist told me no, but Dr. Winer gave me hope. Of course he warned me too that I was too young to be going through these spine surgeries and should lose the weight... but he was willing to do anything to get me out of my pain because I coudln't function anymore. He gave me my life back so that I could get healthy again. He's with Wellspan. The number is 717-747-9911. I hope you will get some relief soon!

    Congratulations on your journey. It seems like it would be a long one, but believe me, once you set things into motion, the time will just tick away, and soon you will be in a much better situation. I wish you all the best and hope to get to know you better. Take care!

  18. Hi, Jonathan! Welcome to LBT! Nice to meet you!

  20. Hi! Hi! Hope you are feeling great!

  21. Well? Well? How are you? I visit the WLC tomorrow and it made me think of you and wonder how it was going. Take care!

  22. Hi, Michelle! I'm doing good! How is it going for you?? My last appointment was with Dr. Weiger, and I didn't get a fill. He thought I was making progress. I think at my next one though I will ask for a fill. I hope it's going well for you!!

  23. Hiya!!! Thanks for the note! I am so excited for you! You are doing great. I hope you have a great week and a nice Valentine's. My week has swallowed me up once again! ha ha ha Bye for now!

  24. Yay for the 25th!!! It will be here before you know it!!!! Congratulations!

  25. Hi, Shelley! Thanks for adding me as a friend!


    You know, I had many, many times too before I was banded that I wondered if I would make it, you know, worried by rebellion was too strong or deeply rooted... but amazingly it was like a different part of my brain took over that suddenly wanted to cooperate with my stomach. My stomach never had a voice before, and now it does... and we listen to it.


    I know you will do great. You will really surprise yourself. Take care!
