nice to see there are still folks being banded. I know it gets a bad rap but I've been extremely successful with it and at least I didn't do a more aggressive surgery...which I preferred not to do. Good luck ladies!

It is so nice to hear others's success stories. I am about 7 weeks post op, 11 days post my first 2cc fill and feeling discouraged and wishing I had done the sleeve, tho I KNEW band was a better choice for me in the long term.

Louie'sMom, how are you feeling? In one week, it'll be my one year bandiversary. I'm still losing. It does come off more slowly than other methods but I'm not dealing with loose skin so we don't have to worry about that surgery... keep in touch.

Happy Bandiversary! That is wonderful. I am feeling like I did before surgery. LOL Great that I am not having any negative side effects but also not having any restriction. You are right that not worrying about loose skin is a great plus. Can I ask how much you have lost in a year? and more importantly how you feel?

Thank you! I've lost 70 and haven't hit my goal yet. I started at 264 and want to get to a toned 180 or 175. I felt great for most of the journey. I did have to have my gallbladder out a few months after being banded which slowed my progress some because of recovering from that surgery. Other than a little reflux every now and then, I feel great! Feeling like you did pre-surgery is good; you don't want to feel miserable. I can recommend a cookbook or other things if you'd like :)
