Need a Mentor/Accountability person.. chicago, IL

Recommended Posts


31 F banded on Feb 26, 08 by Dr Ortiz in MX. I have lost 43lbs including pre-op. I have pretty much plateaued - even yo-yoed within 10 lbs. I have lost motivation to excercise and eat right. If anyone is out there who would like a buddy - and be all GUNG-HO to a healthier weight and lifestyle together, I would love a mentor/accountability partner. Email me at shampoosh@gmail.com.

I feel the same way you do. I was banded 12/3/07, 1st fill 1/4/08 and only lost 64 lbs., but have gained 8 lbs. back. I was told today by my doctor while having another fill, when you weigh alot before surgery, you may only lose this and it may be it. He also stated he has changed his mind on exercising. He used to say eat 19 potato chips, walk 2 miles, now he says that is unrealistic. Yeah! I hate to exercise. But I work in Schaumburg, IL and live in Genoa, IL. Email me if you want to keep in touch. Then we can exchange email addresses.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
