I had surgery March 24, 2008 and I have lost 105 pounds as of right now. I am still losing but it has slowed way down. I started out wearing a size 26 and today I am wearing a size 10! It is frustrating sometimes and there are sometimes complications but I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Whatever you do, don't give up no matter how frustrated you get. Its hard work and it doesnt do it for you, but the results are worth it!


Edit: this as of today, I am in a size 8! Yippee!

Thanks so much for sharing. You look absolutely stunning and your pics are an inspiration to me, as I am scheduled to be banded on 6/2. So nervous but excited all at the same time.

You mentioned that there are still some complications -- I am very curious about the complications that you are still encountering.

Curious minds!!!!

Again, thanks for sharing your inspirational pics -- you look great!!!!:redface:

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

        Vitamin patches work wonderful. They are some what expensive but the only thing I can use
