Catfish, you are an inspiration and proof that believing in yourself and your band is what you need to be successful, even if results don't happen immediately. I am amazed by your success, but also knowing your commitment, am not surprised by it.

Congratulations to someone I consider to be one of the more inspirational people on this board.

I absolutely agree. I have gotten more inspiration and learning from this board than all of the net searching talking to friends in similar situations and the surgeon. This board rocks and you do to.

Thank you for sharing your experiences and insights with us...

Congratulations on your success, and encouragement to others. In today's fast paced society, patience and perserverence are not readily subscribed to. But for the weight loss journey with a band, that is what is required.

Awesome job...and an inspiration to many others!

Catfish - thank you for your post this morning. Beautifully written, and well received. You are a testament of what this is all about. Great job! And I truly believe that slow & steady wins the race, and that the band is not "set and forget" device.

Thanks again for this post......really good advice AND encouragement :)

Thank you for your post. It helped remind me not to panic when my weightloss is stalling. Even though it slowed way down, I'm not gaining. I eat completely different and have different cravings;fruits and veggies. Who knew.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
