Original Post

From what I've been able to determine, factors that predict weight loss by banders may include drinking with meals, exercise, follow-up care (fills), use of diet drugs, race, and starting weight. I believe we can get a statistically valid analysis based on our collective experience. (Actually, your collective experience since I'm being banded next Monday)

We'll be looking at the first 12 months you were banded, or some number of months between 6 and 12 if you have not been banded for a full 12 months.

If you would like to participate, and have been banded for at least six months, then respond to this thread with:

1. Weight when banded (in pounds, if you'd rather not disclose then reply via private email to me)

2. Study duration (between 6 and 12 months)

3. Percentage of meals where you drank during the meal or within 1 hour after the meal

4. Average minutes per week you exercised during the study period

5. Number of fills you received during the study period

6. Regularly used diet drugs during your study period (yes/no)?

7. Race (race showed as a significant success factor in the initial FDA trials for lap-band surgery, leave blank if you object to testing this factor)

8. Weight loss during the study period (in pounds)

The reply format should be "315 pounds, 12 months, 25%, 60 minutes, 7 fills, no diet drugs, hispanic, 65 pounds lost".

Provided we get enough responses, I will perform the analysis and provide statistics and graphs showing how these factors correlate with weight loss among forum members.

Gosh, I would have thought psychological and personality factors would have been WAY too influential for physical data like that to have any real meaning?

I think its more down to the determination of the person in question and their ability to make and stick with the lifestyle changes required.

Sorry, that's not a criticism, just food for thought.

Psychology/personality certainly has a major influence in how much we exercise, in how well we comply with instructions on drinking with meals, in whether we get regular fills, etc. At the same time, these are all things we can control. I will work much harder on not drinking, on exercise, and on getting regular fills if these things prove to be highly correlated with weight loss success.

Hey Scott, I was banded by Dr. Hansen. He's great! Vivienne does my fills now, though. She does a great job and really cares. Anyhow, Dr. H. told me that the #1 reason where he sees people not succeeding like they should is because of drinking with meals. Interesting observation. I personally don't think it's difficult if you drink your Water in between meals, though I couldn't have imagined NOT drinking with meals before I got banded. Just though I'd share...

428lbs, 12 months, 5%, 60 min, 4 fills, none, hispanic, 132lbs lost

Of course the numbers don't tell the full story. I had lost my first 120lbs on just 2 fills (the 2nd fill lasted me 7 months). I've since plateaued the last 2 months and have been struggling to find the right fill level since I've lost so much weight so quickly and will be going in for a fill today to hopefully get me to good restriction again.

The poll was changed to drinking with meals or sooner than 1 hour after, so I am adjusting my original post:

303 pounds, 12 months, rarely to never drank with a meal - 5% of the time I drank sooner than 1 hour after eating, 30 minutes of exercise a week (tops), 4 fills, no diet drugs, caucasian, 81 pounds lost.

I think most of us have only been told to wait 1 hour after eating before drinking. I think it is most important to not drink with meals, as you are constantly washing food from the pouch while you're eating, making room for more. Drinking too soon after eating is supposed to make you hungry faster, but waiting an hour to drink seemed to work for me.

Did your insurance pay for the removal of your band?

I was self pay and wonder what would happen if that happened to me. Will you do the lap band again? Are you glad you did it?

I'm really curious to see how many people drink with meals. I know I'm not supposed to.. but I never have followed that rule. Maybe thats why I haven't had as much success as I'd like. :paranoid

1. Weight when banded 240

2. Study duration 12 months

3. Percentage of meals where you drank during the meal or within 2 hours after the meal 100%

4. Average minutes per week you exercised during the study period 200

5. Number of fills you received during the study period 2

6. Regularly used diet drugs during your study period (yes/no)? no

7. Race Caucasian

8. Weight loss during the study period (in pounds) 60

Hi Scott, I think I met you at one of Dr. Alldredge's support groups this month or last! Here are my stats:

307 starting weight / 10 months since surgery / 20% meals where Water was drank within one hour after or during the meal / 300 minutes average exercise per week / 12 fills / did not use diet drugs / Anglo / 60 pounds lost during initial 10 months.

Can't wait to see your results! Best, Brad

PS - ate ice cream at least once a week! More often on a bad one!

576 Starting weight || 12 Months || 65% Drinking With/After Meals || 45/60 Minutes || 3 Fills || No Diet Drugs || Caucasian|| Lost 157lbs

of course alot of that has changed...I've had my band for 2 years 3 months now and the more weight I've lost my excersizing has increased & I no longer drink with or shortly after meals, I've had more fills & I've noticed with more excersizing & less drinking with food or after I've lost more in less amount of time.....

Man! This is a great thread! I am not banded yet and it just reinforces to me the need to not drink with meals or within 1 hour after eating and to exercise as much as possible! Can't wait til I can contribute to a thread like this. I will probably bebanded sometime in April or May this year!

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
