  1. Want To Be Thin

    I feel like I am starting over

    I was banded June 5, 2007. Went from 341 down to 220. Played with 220-230 for 4 yrs. Last yr was having heartburn, acid reflux, slimming all the time, so went in and got several cc taken out. I did not go back and the weight came back quickly. I went back this past tuesday at 271.5. Went back to liquids for 2 days, then soft foods. As of this am I was at 263.5. I will admit I want to be thin, I want this and that, but I cannot make my mind follow my heart. I go back 2nd wk of April to have my band tweeked again. Hoping it works this time. No excuse for my weight gain except I went right back to eating the way I use to. Hard to believe I gained almost 50 lbs in 1 yr. Oh well all I can do is try. I was ill as a hornet today because it was raining, cold, grandkids were here; everyone was eating all the things I wanted, but I didn't and it just put me in a bad mood. But it is 10 pm and I did not eat the junk food I have been eating.

    I just cant leave it alone...

    Hey we are from the south. And I forsure know a thing or two about cleaning our plates. I started using a saucer when I first had my band 3 1/2 yrs ago. It helped for for the first 6 months. But now, with all the ups and downs. Now I have just set it in my mind and I also just put on my plate a small piece of meat, a couple scoops of veggies and that is it. Try it and when you want 2nds just say " NO Not This Minute, or 2,3,4,5. This is helping me right now to not eat my husband's no bake cookies that he gets from the local bakery. When the temptation arises just say No, Not This Minute and Walk Away.
  11. Started at 249 Jan 15, 2011. Goal was 15 lbs. gone by the 15th of Feb. YAY!!!! I did it. Today I am at 234. 2nd Goal 2 lbs a week for 9 wks that will get me back to 217. this is where I started giving up. Not this time. One minute at a time, One hour, One Day. I can do this.

    WOW 4oz is a lot

    Happy Valentines!!!See Zen. When you are tight 4oz. is alot. It is amazing. Hit my first goal today 15 lbs by the 15th of Feb. I am now 234. I am so proud of myself. I have to admit I am living the not this minute, not this hour, not this day. But, I did it and they say what you do in 15 days will develop into a habit. Ricky wanted to take me to dinner tonight for valentines and I said I did not care but that I really would not be eating nothing. It was sweet and he is so supportive. So we sat home he got Zaxby's and I hate homemade chicken salad.

How bout you did you like the pouch test did it help you regain restriciton? let me know ttyl

  14. Hey Zen how are you feeling now with another fill. I have decided I am not gonna get a fill right now. I have done the 5 day and that is what showed me that i had not hurt my band. I am 14.5 down since Jan 15th and I am gonna stay here and do it on my own without a fill. gonna try to hold off until i get back to my 217 weight again which I hope will be in april.

    Sister is hurt from my weight loss

    OML you are all going thru what I went thru years ago with my sister (I at that time lost right at 100 lbs). Now today I am losing thru lapband and she needs to lose for her health. Diabetic type 2, high BP. I think she does not want to lose in fear of hurting me again. I lost alot she lost alot in a few short months. I went into depression, hurt myself with food and gained all that weight back plus more. Just Talk as much as you can. We are human, we all get jealous we all get envious. We all do not want anyone to steal our limelight. We all want to be the special one at some point in our lives esp. if we have been fat our whole lives. Pray Pray Pray for division not to interfer with this.
