Feelin' Good and Lookin' Fine!



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

It's great to read so many success stories. I can't say enough positive things about having this done. I'm healthier and happier and have no regrets.

I feel great now. I still have weight to lose but my confidence in my ability to do so is so high. I used to go on diets all the time but in the back of my mind I knew I would fail. This time, I won’t fail… and with losing 50 pounds so far I’m well on my way to success.

I’m getting a lot of comments from people now on how good I look. I finally decided to buy clothes that actually fit me instead of a bunch of baggy clothes with flower prints on them and the great comments keep coming! icon_smile.gif It’s a nice feeling.

The other great benefit is how much better I feel. My back and knees don’t hurt like they used to and I don’t have nearly the stomach pains that I would constantly get.

It's all thumbs up for me and I wouldn't change a thing. :lol:

Ruth

Thank you for sharing your story. I should be getting my surgery date on Tuesday (Sept. 16) and hope it will be within a week or so. I have been hoping to find more positive stories. I read a lot of whining and negativism and I can do without that. I will save your story to read over and over.

Congratulations on your upcoming surgery and thank you for the nice reply.

The key for me has been my attitude about it. I'm not saying there hasn't been some rough points but in order for it to really work you must change your attitude about food and eating habits. The band is just a tool, it is not a magic wand. You have to work at to make it successful but the band definitely helps.

Good luck to you! Let me know how it goes.
