Hi everyone, I sort new to this thread, but I did have my surgery on Aug 16 of last year. I went from 263 to 190 and I am trying to lose 5 more by my one year mark so I can reward myself with some ZUMBA PANTS! I am excited, but haven't been doing so well these last couple days overeating. I am determined though so wish me luck! I am glad to see everyone is doing well and happy one year mark! (yes, I am trying not to follow the trend lol)

Hi, We had surgery on the same day. We also started at the same weight almost. I was 264 according to my home scale.< /p>

I have not done as well as you and I take full blame for that.

I have not followed the rules as closely as I should and I have been indulging in alcohol on most weekends which stalls and slows my weight loss. I had to come to grips with that today and stop fooling myself. So I am cutting out the alcohol all together.

I am also cutting out the carbs for the rest of the month so that I can jump start my losses again. I have been at the same weight for the last 3 months. My next fill appt is on 8/17 hoping to be down at least 10 more lbs by then.

You have done very well at least your in onederland as I should be too. I take consolation in the fact that most surgeons say that with the band we can lose from 1/3 to 1/2 of our excess weight.

I'm so disappointed in myself overall though. My band has not failed me I have failed it but I will get it together.

I think I might finally be at my "sweet spot". It's been a long road with a leaky port and gallbladder surgery, but I went in on Monday for a fill and I'm about 5.5 cc's full now. I've had 2 stuck episodes since then, but I'm adjusting slowly. I've worked out 3x already this week and I really hope this is what I need to lose the last 30lbs!

I agree spoiltmom........I know I need a fill, but can't afford one right now......I can maintain, but losing the last poundage without a fill....I don't know.

My doc says I don't need anymore fills b/c I've hit his goal weight:/

I think I just really need to kick up my exercising and it will eventually come off.

hang in there spoiltmom! you will get there! As we have seen the closer we get to our goal weight the harder it is to get those last few pounds off.

I've been playing aroung with my exercise routine and foods as my weight loss has slowed down. However, I am extremely happy with my loss so far. I have finally hit the onderland after yo yoing for the last two months. For me it was a mixture of adjusting my carb/protein intake and exercise time vs. intensity level.

Bandiversary is Aug. 23.

hello ladies! I haven't checked in in a while and from the looks of things you are all doing so well! My 1 yr anniversary was 8/4...I was hoping to be in onederland by then but you know what? I've lost 54 lbs so far and know that without the lapband there is NO WAY I could have even done that. Im ecstatic with 54 lbs and know that I can control my weight loss. I have not been exercising which I know I need to do but its so hard to make myself do it. I've upped my anti-depressant from 60 mg of Cymbalta to 90 mg PLUS the dr added seroquel for me since I was still having problems sleeping at night. (nothing to do with lapband- it all stemmed from the loss of my son 6 yrs ago). Im finally starting to feel REALLY GOOD! Im hoping this will kick start me into exercising now!

Anywhoo- just wanted to pop in and say hi to everyone! Keep on keeping on!

Amber 54 lbs is nothing to sneeze at. The reality of our weight loss is due to the banding process along with our determination and being human. I've learnt several things about myself this past year since being banded and I have no regrets. I'm ready to get on to the 2nd year and do what it takes to get to goal and then continue working my issues with life and food in general.

Beach bunny happy bandiversary! May you have many more....:D

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
