Wow, this is almost making me rethink my sleeve. At least this might be a good option for my husband. He wants to get the surgery but his BMI isn't high enough for our insurance.

At the moment, all of these devices can only stay inside a person up to 6 and possibly even 12 months. After the device is removed, I'm sure most people regain their weight. Hopefully, they'll figure out how to create devices that will be more permanent and won't need to be replaced every few months. Until that point, I think these are all great concepts and it's exciting that there will be more tools to combat Obesity.

Alex I'm so psyched about this invention. Looks similar to the flexible one, the Endobarrier, I posted in this area. The bad thing about that one was I think cramping and pain at times. I think I might be ok with it.. Weight issues have only been a problem for me the last 10 years or so, and I think once I lost it, I would hope perhaps with the freedom of my body to move, as I used to, be able to maintain it. Anyway, thanks for posting this on Facebook, where I saw it.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
