Nov 2012 bandsters how are you now?



Recommended Posts

Hi, I was banded in nov 2012, I've lost 50 ish lbs. I'm currently in a plateau. Im frustrated but I know if I keep up what I'm doing, it's going to go. I just had another fill and I think I'm really feeling restriction - finally!! I'll admit I've indulged here and there, but I try to choose my indulgence. It's not easy. I don't anything except Protein drinks and Water. Anything else tastes nasty now! Weird huh? I have had only one hamburger since oct 2012, one fry which I couldn't stomach, and the best thing is that I'm eating sooooooo much better..!!!! More chicken, fish and veggies!!! Yes I had wls, but it's a tool. You still have to watch what you eat.

I admit I'm frustrated that I'm not farther along, but I haven't given up. And I don't plan on it.

I am feeling wonderful, I can do things I haven't been able to do in years and for much longer amounts of time.

I hope the other nov 2012 are doing good!!!

My wife and I were banded November 6th. I am down 117lbs, in the same time, my wife has lost 65lbs. She has also plateaued, and is getting frustrated given how much I have lost, but she is staying positive and working out more than ever. She had some other medical issues going on the past few months which may have contributed to her not losing any weight all summer.

Thanks so much for starting this thread!! I was banded November 2012 and was down 65 pounds by June, had plateaued, and then hurt my knee in a bounce house needing meniscal repair and ACL reconstruction this past October. I am up 15 pounds since June so am now down about 40 pounds. I have just been cleared to start exercising as tolerated. I will admit, I have turned to food once again for comfort but am ready to get back on the bandwagon to weight loss. I am even contemplating joining Weight Watchers just to give myself some accountability on a weekly basis and get the weekly support as my WL doctor is over an hour away. Excited to get back in gear. Good luck everyone!! Happy New Year!!

I was banded in early Nov 2012. Within the first 8 months lost 80 lbs. It totally slowed down and now I have gained about 25 due to poor choices primarily. I moved across country, took a new job and travel very often for work. I have to get back to basics and am thinking about the 5 day pouch test. Anyone done it and had success? Very happy with my progress but I am so annoyed to have gained at all and just want to get back to where I was and lose again.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
