Thanks for uplifting story Bayougirl. Sometimes I think of removal of my own band. Not settled on it yet.

I miss all the band members that use to come here......

well, those days were long ago and we were all new to this kind of elongated complex help-ourselves era....I'm, pleased that my other 'co-morbidity' factors are under far far more rational control than in that early Bandster rush, akin in some ways to the Oklahoma Land Rush when the territory was becoming a state & the playas lined up in their wagons to race to the best land they could get to before others moved in...

The relative excitement & hope for a New Era was prominent and not a day passed I couldn't count on at least SOME stories of Bandster Victories!!!

Well said Jack. I also miss some of the banders.... nice to hear from bayou girl again. Hope more comment.
Pro: I weigh what I did in high school( almost 50 years ago)feel good and I try everyday (almost)

Con: It is a bit harder for me to socialize as many things to do involve food and/ or cocktails. Kinda limiting.

Loving seeing long term banders on here!!

re: "Just keeping off my weight and exercise is my goal most days
Best of luck to all"

nice thoughts....I tend to believe the old saw, that 'the harder I work the luckier I become'....

Now.....off to early T-day prep. It's more now management of furniture placement than food prep. I've managed to reduce this event from 'all day gluttony gagging down spoonfuls of everything on the feast table' to far more rational moderated bites. And 'leftovers' very much part of preplanned 'next-week' meals. Our food prep mound for 6 this year, is less than what -2- of us used to prep just for ourselves.

I'm actually finally learning to eat 'meals' with regular inbetween Snacks, than graze all day on everything. Tralaaaa!!!

Banded in 2012. Lost 60# but I have gained back 40#🤬. I can’t feel restriction now. Have I stretched my pouch. Anyone else??

'stretched my pouch'???

good question, there's ways to measure that; my own restriction remains 'FICKLE' as sometimes I'm sure it works perfectly while other times seems absent. Haven't added any fill since 2011 due to motility issues.

The reality of 'gaining weight' to my rational mind means nothing other than "I've found a way to eat more than my body needs"....ie...."Sport Eating". Yes, I recognize this as an Old Enemy.

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
