Soon we aren't going to say anything of substance because we may offend someone! If a blog bothers me I just delete it. Everyone has an off day once in awhile. :huh:

Well said addrienne, and Joanne is right, if I don't like someone's blog, I either delete, or don't bother!

Great post and I agree.

Everyone has an OPINION!! Do you have to agree? NOT AT ALL.

Everyone does have an opinion. Too bad everyone doesn't have common sense!!

This will not be a popular rant....

I'm sorry but when someone posts that they are just a week post op and they just tested their band by eating a large pizza and want to know if they are OK. Then I say let the b***h slapping begin. Not a good attitude I know but when you've read enough of these posts it can be frustrating. I usually sit back and shake my head at the ignorance and then I ask myself did the person not bother to educate themselves or was it the educators who failed them or are they just that out of control with addiction.

People who do not comply and are completely ignorant and are the ones leading to skewing stats as far as success vs. failure and doing a dis-service to themselves and the reputation of the band.

Hi Jim, I really have to disagree with you. I think this is going to be a VERY popular rant. Well said! And Adrienne, the lunchmeat comment had me laughing so hard that now all I have to do is think of the word lunchmeat and that's it for me. My husband is calling down from his office, what's so funny? How to explain, but it's all wrapped up in that most predictable of human behaviors: stupidity.

I couldn't think of anything at the time. I was just annoied and lunch meat was the first food that popped into my head. :)

Jim Jim Jim.... Wow, you thief; those were some of my thoughts intermingled in that rant!

--hugs--

Occasionally I will read post to my hubby that the noncompliant bandsters make:

--- last night for supper I had fried pork chops, Mac n cheese, cornbread, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes & a jug of ice cold sweet tea. I chewed really well but i still occasionally felt that pain in my chest and took my time but it took me about an 1 1/2 hours to finish eating my entire meal. I am 1 month post-op and I thought this band was supposed to "make me eat less"? I tried it once, but i just can't live off of 2 cups if food.

First we were shocked & floored!

Then we just would stare at each other like "it's happening again, what is wrong with these people"!

Now, I just shake my head and say "well I guess they aren't as sick and tired of being fat as I am"!

--- hubby says if they would have dropped 10k for their band then maybe they would be more compliant, but that theory has also been disproven.

....carry on....carry on

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
