I am now down 30 pounds. Memorial day I started walking about 3/4 of a mile a day, I am now up to 2.25 miles per day. I am thrilled with my results. This is the lowest I have been in about 16 years!

Getting my balloon out tomorrow- I've lost 47 pounds! I cannot say it has been easy, but I am very happy I did it.for some reason the last few weeks has been particularly tough, lots of bloating, heartburn, generally feeling crummy. I'm not sure why, perhaps my stomach has had enough. Anyway, I can't wait to get it out and start to feel normal again. Has anyone heard how long it takes to recover from removal, how you feel after its out?

I had mine removed in May and only a sore throat for a few days! Everything else went back to normal! I didn't have to take anymore meds for heartburn, bloating or anything!!! After two days my appetite came back to normal so be careful as you can easily slip back into old habits! Since removal in May I had lost 50lbs and gained back 10 lbs and lost 5 again! My doctor gave be phentermine to use for now so I can try to stay on track!

I've had it in for a week and have lost 5.7kgs which works out to 12.5 lbs. I must add that I think a lot of that weight was all the IV fluids and stuff because I came out the hospital 2.7kgs more than what I weighed when I went in. Still thrilled with the results so far!

that's my concern.. i hope i have taught myself a new lifestyle of healthy eating and once the balloon is removed not go back to my old, bad habits.

my balloon was placed on july 7th.. as of today, i have lost 9lbs.

That is my concern too!!! Let's hope we learn some good habits. I know eating had become a bit of a recreational activity for me! Fingers crossed for all of us!! You're doing really great!
