Hey 50 & over gang We have a new spot



Recommended Posts

That's why I brought this thread out of retirement, we haven't retired from life after all.
I'm an odd-ball, at an age some want to sit down and rock, I want to have my surgery and go on living. In 2 weeks I will have my RuN bypass and on December 26 I will become 73, never been 73 before but I believe I can do it and do it well.
So any,of you over50s want to pray for me , send me good wishes, do a belly dance in my honor, all would be great. In the meantime I'm here to be a friend to all. Live life, live it abundantly, and with no apology. After 50 we have little to repent of anyway!!

I can chime in. I’m almost 64 and been banded well over a decade. Very happy with my decision....

however... they’re are days my band is NOT agreeable, so liquids ( ok frozen yogurt or indulgence frozen) may help
I get through it , and it can still be frustrating because I can’t see it coming.
All and all, I delight in being 90 lbs lighter thru life. I find this world easier to negotiate at a “normal” size... whatever that means to each of us .

Hi,

I’ve been banded since 2012. It was slow at first with no restriction and needed allot of fill. I finally got to a good place but added a little more and it got too tight but I loved the rapid weight loss . I lost about 100 pounds and then starting to infill they found a slip took out most Fluid and weight started going up. Then they found another slip ( I had no idea). This was in May and they took all the fluid out and have been slowly filling. As soon as it was out my body’s digestion seemed different. I never had gas and as soon as I would eat anything I would have gas. I’ve been really watching what I eat and volume plus increased exercise to walk/jog 3 mikes most days. The weight is just coming on line gang busters. I feel like where is it coming from is every calories eat is being stored to fat. My stomach doesn’t hurt but it just looks so big like it’s bloated. I’m getting so depressed. Just had another fill which I’m at 6.5 and still don’t think feel anything (possibly a little). Has anyone had similar body reactions? I’m not normally a gassy person and I didn’t have it after first slip but they didn’t take all out. I know I have or did have insulin resistance when I was at high weights. I am so sick of this body I said I would never go to again!!
