Hello! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to everyone on the forum. I had Lap Band surgery June 8, 2011. So far I have lost 46 pounds, and am very happy with my decision. I have a 14cc band, and it is currently filled to 8.5. My surgery itself went pretty well. I did it on an outpatient basis, because I didnt want to stay at the hospital. If I had that to do over, I would have stayed. I also had hernia surgery at the same time for a hernia I was unaware of. I think the biggest adjustment to all of this for me has been mental. I never realized how embedded eating was in my life, and I still find myself feeling emotionally lost at times because I am unable to eat like I used to. I look forward to interacting with my fellow banders and people who may be considering having the surgery.

I guess most of us have had a few psycological problems before being banded. Being banded doesn't change anything,

the eating problems are still there. It takes a lot of will power to overcome them. If we could lose weight without WLS of

whatever type, we would. You seem to be doing well, your weight loss is wonderful. I'm trying to lose without fills, my

hunger hasn't been too bad, and I, still losing, I was one of those big meal guys, but the band seems to have helped a

lot with that. Nice to meet you, Stacie.

Welcome Stacie! The forums have helped me write out my feelings sometimes instead of eating them! Hope they can help you too.
