Same boat! I had surgery in 2011 and lost 105 but up 30. I know what needs to be done, not sure why I let myself struggle so much. My real struggle is sweets and night time eating. I can do good all day, still measure my meals and I'm good there. So today, I am starting again!

I had lap band in 2012. Lost over 100 lbs. Now have thyroid problems and gaing weight. I don't eat any different. On synthroid now how do I lose this weight? Desperate in Alabama. Very discouraged.

I have been banned since 07. Up and down, now almost back to 240... I can't get my head in the game. How can I want to lose this so badly and hate to look at myself, or be so discouraged buying bigger clothes again, but not be able to get mentally back into it? Sighhhhh

Thank you for sharing your struggles !!! I'm guilty of failing my band too. I've lost 30lbs but nothing crazy. I always come on here, so I don't feel alone in this never ending struggle being the chubby girl. Ohhh and did I mention I had the surgery back in 2008 :( Recently, I thought the band slipped and had all the Fluid removed. Turns out I have kidney stones near my port site.

One day at time right ?

I had my band done in 2012 and hardly lost anything. Had a baby in that time and now I am ready to get back on board! I am doing Protein Shakes for 2 weeks to get my band/body/mind all back in-check! I control my body , my body doesn't
Control me. I am down 4.8 pounds in 7 days and I am ok with whatever amount right now. A loss is a loss!!! I am ready to use the tool I got. I can go back and forth about how I should've gotten a different surgery or how this is harder then I thought so I should have did it differently. But it is what it is SO... let's get this done right!!!! I am ready for a fresh start and to get to my end goal! We can do this!!! Motivation/dedication/ and determination! [emoji4]

I am in the same boat!! You guys are not alone!! Was banded in 2008 lost all my weight I wanted, kept it off for 8 years and I am up 40 pounds now. I gave up the bread, pizza, calzones and am trying so hard to lower carbs, but it is coming off 1/2 pound a week. Not good!! I retired 3 years ago and do not exercise or walk like I did back in the beginning of this journey. I totally understand what everybody here is going through. We just have to keep trying.

I was banded in 2011, lost 70, then nothing for years. I was recently revised to the Bypass and I could not be happier with that choice!

      Starting to see a rise in trolling of the site, anyone can make a profile and antagonize the good people here, sad. Time for a break...

      Just wanted to give an update. I've been really busy lately with work and my husband had recent surgery. I was off work last week and taking care of him, amongst a nice visit from my mom.
      I'm getting super close to Onderland! I keep teetering around 201-203lbs. Its been this way for the last two weeks.
      I went shopping this past weekend for fall/winter clothes. I am officially no longer a plus size woman. I wear dresses every day, so it's crazy to say, but I hadn't bought any pants since I was a size 20. I only replaced my pants once from a 26ish to a 20 and then I just bought size 12/14 jeans this weekend  And I'm wearing a large in tops (previously a 4X) . It was such a surreal experience going in and being able to shop in this HUGE section of the store. Although, I'm learning, no matter what your size, clothes are still hard to shop for. I thought size would open all these wondrous opportunities, not so much LOL.
      Basically, I'm keeping busy and keeping my mind healthy. A part of that is I'm not hyper focused on the scale. I get more comfort from the NSV anyways.
       I hope to be online more this week

        I'm glad everything is going well on your end. Family first, always and of course, but we do miss your presence here. Congrats on your clothes shopping! I recommend to not go overboard, since you are still losing and will probably be much smaller by the time it gets really cold.

        Way to go!

        @macadamia thank you :) I am being careful not to buy too much, but my weight loss has slowed substantially. I'm not losing 10lbs-15lbs a month like I previously was. I'm lucky to get off 5lbs a month now. Not to say that I wouldn't lose a size after a couple months, but it's not as rapid. Plus I buy all my clothes from Marshalls and TJMaxx (who's return policy is practically forever), so if they don't fit when it gets time to wear them... then I'll return them for store credit to buy new stuff.

        Always thinking ahead - awesome!

      Stall is finally broken and I am losing again. Stalls suck but I understand them much better now. I am still feeling great and have kicked my workouts up a notch. I went to an arm/abs class that turned out to be all men and "me".  The dudes walked in with their 30 lb hand weights and I have my little 7.5/10 lbs and I was thinking to myself...what did I get myself into, and am I going to embarrass myself?  Well I decided to stick it out and although I couldn't do everything the dudes were doing, I did a pretty darn good job of keeping up and I am proud of myself for being able to stick with it. I decided I am going back again tomorrow and I am going to kill it again. I belong there too!

        Good for you! I'm still on 3lb weights :( But, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I'm glad you're feeling so well and able to work out so much! I'm sure that's really taking the inches off!

      The whole time I kept having a nightmare I wouldn't lose weight after all this. How horrifying to have it come true. I had surgery on the 8th. I haven't lost anything since. i drink my water, my protein shakes, I walk, but nothing. How could this be happening. Am I just doomed to be overweight forever? I am beyond devastated. Maybe something changes in the next couple months, but I am no longer hopeful.

        Calm down. You're still very swollen. Many doctors advise against weighing the first month because it can be very disheartening. Everyone heals at different rates. Just keep with your plan and you'll be ok. I promise, the scale will move soon - and BIG! It can take a full month for all the abdominal swelling to go down.
