Hi everyone. I am new to this site but spent quite a bit of time yesterday reading some posts and messages. I was amazed at how much info and support is out there! I have been overweight all of my life. I have struggled with my weight and insecurities that went along with it. I have tried every diet under the sun. I would lose and then I would gain it all back. I got my band in January of 2010. I had a friend who had gotten the band about a year and a half before me and I was amazed at how it worked for her. We work for the same company and I knew the band was not covered by our insurance. I always said, if I could afford it, I would get it done too. Well, my parents offered me the band as a gift. I jumped at the chance. I lost 15 pounds on the pre-surgery diet and another 7 since my surgery. My weight loss has been slow, but I have lost inches. My Dr. said that as long as I'm losing inches I'm doing well. I had my 6th fill yesterday. After reading all the posts I don't feel as if something was wrong with me or my band. After my fill, I can feel a HUGE difference. I think I may finally be at my sweet spot. I am hoping to start seeing some results very soon. I'm so glad I found this site and I am looking forward to meeting some new friends here! Thank you for being there for all of us!
