Not absurd but true,this is not my 1st surgery,I thank God for assistance I had lab in 2005,I went from 300lbs to 185lbs,I started to have problems 2 yrs ago,I wanted my band redone but they wouldn't do it so I went the sleeve.

These surgeries are life savers with diet,exercise and mind changes,but this one is an issue for me.

I was eating 400 calories at 4 months, and if you were given a diet to follow as you were with the band you should be losing. 60 g of Protein and I usually had 2 Protein Drinks on ice filled me up. I could barely eat 3 oz of meat. What are you eating and how much? I'm sorry you haven't had success as the first 4 months tend to be the "honeymoon" period where you lose the most. I also had the band and I followed the same "diet" but more emphasis on protein.

Too not lose weight you've got to be eating to many carbs. Calories. Sodium. Sugar.

So many foods or meals you can buy that say they are healthy actually have too many carbs and too much salt.

Every time I go shopping I have to read the label on absolutely everything and 90% of items I look at are not good enough for weight loss..

You need to be eating clean Protein before anything else.. Low carb.

If you're hungry you'll be snacking all day everyday and the calories will add up..

With liquid diet, then soft foods diet, etc., how did you not lose wt? We're not even allowed bread or Beans or fruit with skins or rice until afterc4 mos. The average is to lose 30 lbs in the first 6 wks. Having sugar and eating everytime there's room in your banana stomach will stop wt loss. You need to wat 2-3 hrs between meals. Log your 1/4 cup meals with MyFitnessPal app.
