How is the year going for everyone?



Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have not posted in a while, and have been wondering how the year has been going for everyone?

I started this year with the same resolution as many many years before... To get healthier!!!

Weighed in on Jan 1st at 369lbs. Started per op diet on Jan the 14th.

Banded on Jan the 29th at 355lbs.

Second fill today, 310lbs. I have had good and bad days...As all of us do.

Everytime I have a bad day or rough time with the band, I log in and get insperation for everyone of you. You might not realize it, but all of you

are helping myself and others by just posting good and bad experiances.

I THANK ALL OF YOU...HAVE A GREAT YEAR!!!!!!''

Congratulations on your weight loss!

I've had a fabulous year. In fact, this has very likely been the happiest year I've had in at least a decade. I've lost 200 pounds since being banded in January 2012 and it's drastically changed my life for the better.

Best wishes Daron :)

This site is wonderful when you feel great or bad. I am from Boston and right now I feel sad. I was out with my husband today and he had Burger King fried chicken sandwich because he was mad at what happened yesterday. I was good, had a Protein Bar. All of our news channels keep showing the bombing etc. Boston needs happy people right now and this site has them, thank you all!!!!!!!! I understand where you are coming from about support. :( :)

So sorry dylanmiles. I know how you feel...I live not too far from the World Trade Center and it was a terrible day for all NYers and for my family, an especially scary morning as my sister works a block from the Trade Center and we weren't sure of her safety for a while. She was fine thank goodness but she lost many friends and colleagues... I know it sounds silly, but stop watching TV. Go out and do something, anything, other than watching the news. That's what we did the day after and it did help to get away from it for a little while.

Thanks. I am watching the Red Sox kick ass 7-0 in the first!! That is a happy way to start. NYY are going to play Sweet Caroline tonight for Boston, that is played at every Sox home game. Thanks NYY.

Having a good year, weight loss has slowed down-I think I need a jump start. Over all I am happy with the way things are going. My one year anniversary is coming up May 24th, I thought I would be at goal by then but that is not realistic as I have only been losing about two pounds a month ( but still losing ) Do not like the loose skin but would rather have that than the weight. I am over 65 so it is hard to tone it up. Love all the NSV's so please keep them coming it gives me inspiration. Hugs to everyone.

Wow Missy! :)

200 lbs in just over a year, that's AMAZING!!! How did you manage to lose so much? My weight is coming off really slow...and I know, I know, everybody's different and it didn't get on overnight. Still, I was hoping for more than just 3-4 lbs a month. But, I am trying to be patient.

Congrats!!!

Kathy =^..^=

Hi to all, I have not written for quite a while...lots has been happening. It has been two years since lapband surgery. I lost about 40 pounds and gained ten back. I returned to clinic for some support...some good ideas, which they gave me but I seem to gain and lose the same two pounds. I know one of my issues is late night eating. Usually, I can be a fairly disciplined person but I surely don't think I am now! Any suggestions?

Novena did you discuss a small fill? I am entering year 7 and when I lose my discipline abilities a small it is usually because I am o longer in the green zone. I have gone in and gotten just a 1/4 of a cc and it has brought me right into the green. They should be able to check it under fluoro and see how fast the barium goes through. Don't give up!

      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.
