I had my surgery in November of 2007. I have lost 70 pounds. I have hit a stand still and I don't want it to stop. I need to lose more weight! I loved your story. Have you ever had to have your band loosened because you got something stuck?

How's your progress since you last posted in September? A co-worker of mine is getting closer to lap-band reality(ins. approval, going to seminar then will be referred to a surgeon etc.). So I'm following her journey as well. I'm going to get organized after my college classes are done for summer and see all of what I have to do in order to get approved also. What a great inspiration all of you are to share your stories and photos!:wub:

It was good to see your before and after pics. My surgery date was Feb 24. I have only lost 7 lbs since then. My first fill was last Friday. Was it slow going for you in the beginning? My starting weight was 227 lbs. I have started using elipitical or treadmill for 30 minutes before and after work. Hope that gives me a little kick start! I am getting a little down on myself for not loosing more! But I try to keep telling myself-at least I am not gaining. Used to I would loose 6 lbs- gain 4 lbs then loose 4 lbs gain 6 lbs. and on and on. So no yoyo so far. That is something to be greatfull for. I have never done one of these chat room things before. But I figured any motivation I could get would be good thing!
