Baton Rouge Balloon?



Recommended Posts

Hi all - I just started researching weight loss procedures. I'm 43 and have 75 lbs to lose. I've tried Nutrisystem, a shake only diet, Ideal Protein, Functional Medicine detox, intense exercise...and always lost 20 lbs - that's it though. I admit that I don't always follow ALL of the rules so that's probably why. I'm frustrated and found out about the balloon. Any advice? Does it work? Regrets? Anyone in Baton Rouge have recommendations?

Thanks!

I had my balloon put in in January. Sure I lost 20 lbs, but I lost that in the 1st month because I had to fast and get used to the balloon. Haven't lost amy weight since. It's been a big dissapointment for me.

From someone who's gone through it I'd say I have absolutely no regrets... the balloon did what it was supposed to do and that was help me lose weight, which I did. However, the balloon is not a cure you need to take is seriously and really work with your doctor to break your bad habits. I'm having my second balloon put in in July because I still need help losing weight. 6 months was just not enough time for me to break all my bad habits. Hopefully this time around I'll kick my bad habits for good. Good luck to you and stick it out... the first two weeks are the worse but it gets better...

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
