I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. Diet after diet, losing 50lbs and gaining it all back and then some. After some time thinking, I decided to try the band. I am getting banded tommorow. Im excited and nervous. I love food!!!! I hope to gain more control over what I eat and how much I eat.

Got the band placed in 8/2010, had one fill then life got messy... When back to graduate school, got married, moved..etc... Busy life...

Got back on the Bandwagon in 7/2012.... Trying to make this work for me.. The Lapband didn't fail me, I failed to use it to its potential.
Second fill 1cc, then third fill .75cc. Feeling the appropriate amount of fullness. Reading about the band everyday... tracking my calories... making this apart of who I am..

Thanks for listening..
