So amazing to be Banded!!!!



Recommended Posts

It's almost a year since I've been banded 10/28/09 and I'm down 60lbs!!! I've never felt or looked better and I do look good. When people ask me was the WLS worth it, I respond HECK YES, should have had it sooner. The only bad thing is having to buy new clothes but is that really a bad thing? I'm only 30lbs to my goal and I know that I will make it. Just wanted to share my success story with everyone.

I agree, it is amazing.

Just remember to buy clothes for NOW.

Don't be tempted to buy a summer outfit in the winter because it is in the sale because you might find it is too big when summer comes...that is the lesson I have learnt:)

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
