  1. WOW 🇺🇸✅💯🙏 by the Grace of God 🙏
    17 years ago I went to Mexico 😎
    and had a lap band put on for weight loss 😳
    and my waist was 64 inches and 🤔
    That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone 🤬
    my weight was 375 pounds. 😡
    Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded.
    I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. 💯
    But the real story here is, today.
    My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. 💕❤️🥰💯💯
    Both incredible numbers but think about this.
    My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around ❤️🥰💯💯
    Wow that’s a brain wrecker. 
    ❤️🇺🇸💯🙏
    Still,
    I love my band 
    I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06
    FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol
    Life is good 🔥

    13 years later and - I Love my band

    Hahaha I am 15 years into the lap band successfully with no fills and still down almost 100 pounds from surgery day. Was 150+ down before life stepped in lol. I love my band still, however. Exactly as my doctor had said this band is not a magic era it is to help you learn how to eat well. He was exactly truthful and that’s the way it is today. I eat one filling meal a day about 3 PM and a snack around 8 PM. My meal is generally planned about a week in advance because I still craving love food. So I eat it, all of it. Just not all at once. 1st protein must have substance no bullshit food like lettuce. The protein of it is generally about 3 or 5 ounces. When it hurts I stop eating. Rule #1 snack: salami & good cheese 2oz drink ONLY water ever lol reminder: the only exception to any rule is there’s always an exception mine has a 30 day value to it minimum. eat and drink what you crave never eat it more than once a month lots of luck it’s all in your head

  7. My lowest # was 203lbs and I then thought "The Bom" and then it all went to shit. For some reason my mind "I think took over" and screwed it all up LOL or at least thats who I am blaming today LOL . SO, moving forward I have NEVER had a fill in 4 years so I think it is time. My goal is to get Fills in 2011 and IFFN by JULY I am not at or below 220 I am going to have this band removed ONLY to have it put back on in 2012 / the surgery is always good for a boost I figure. God Bless everyone who makes the attempt to be a better person inside and out. I STILL - LOVE MY BAND
  8. So, I have had my band and I love it by the way for more than 3 years. My weight has gone from 325+ to now 225 and I have and do work our 4 times a week, nothing to strenous, walking very fast and toe touches as well as arm swinging fro rotation of waist. NOW, I am feeling like something is wrong cause of this tender area. I can feel my port but feels like it is not laying as it was before. I can and do eat solids and soups porpotionately and they stay down so I am not sure waht is going on. The tenderness is just below my center - top of stomach and the tenderness is and has been there for 3 days now. What do or would you do. I know about -run to the doctor and have it checked so please do net tell me that. Just trying to find feed back from anyone who may have experienced this in their journey and what their results were for resolve. Thanks in advance.

    3 Years later and doing great "I Think"

    3 years and 1 month ago on this date I had my Mexican experience in Tijuanna with Dr Corvola and i weighed over 330lbs. Today, I think I am like 210lbs but I have and continue to have many failures and learning experiences. Like, I am back to NO SUGARS, they are the enemy no doubt. And, I am back in the gym more than 4 days a week and I am so scared to allow any indulgence that its sick. I want so much but I allow nothing and I like it like that for now. I a, insistant to get under 200 and the sooner the better. All by the Grace of God and the discipline of a bandster. Happy Thanksgiving.:cursing:

    New Year Goal / under 200

    Here I am again and I still love my band. I actualy gained during the holidays "12lbs" but I gotta say it as great to eat and eat most of what I know I shouldn't have. I am back home in Texas and back in control of my eating habits, thank God. Nothing but fear ran through my mind all the while I was eating crap. Being I am an extremist so goes my habits and I was on holiday :confused:. Holiday is over and my plan is to get back into the gym at least 2 days a week and a much stricter det plan for the under 200 goal. Chocolate is definately my weakness and I know it but that doesn't really help much. I pray I can be strong and God continues to bless me with good health.

    2 Years Later and 145lbs lost

    I Love my Band STILL! The journey is in motion and I think I am doing fine but its just the nature of me that is aways wanting more :tongue2:. Like now I really want to be 175lbs and I am having a fit over being stuck right now at 205 give or take a pound. I have lost all interest in the gym and my eating habits are beginning to suck but not really I am just eating more and uglyier food than I know I need to. AND, the holiday sare here and I do not want to miss the excellent items that are on the table this time of the year :tt1:, yeaHHHHHHHH. I continue to thank God for keeping me healthy and my band in excellent working order to date so I am blessed, yet I want MOREEEEEEE:cry_smile:. Chocolate is still my greatest weakness but I suspect this is just the way it is and I accept it but I know I gotta do better to be better. Choices - Choices - Choices, I really liked it better when the band was making my choices and saying NO to everything that wasn't warm and soupy :cool:.
