Gurl, You must have the blues or something!!! How on earth could you think a lb a day is failure??? Darlin' it won't stay a lb a day unless something is bad wrong with you. Reasonable weight loss is 1-2 lbs per week and anything over that is a big bonus or it could even be unhealthy.
You surely didn't expect to be halfway to goal in 2 weeks did you? Now give it up, and start living. Go for a walk, see some scenery. It is too early for you to do any other kind of exercise, but you must be seriously depressed if you honestly believe that you are a failure. Deal with the depression because you will be skinny and depressed if you don't. I also believe that those of us who eat around our surgery are depressed and just don't deal with it.
Hi all, I had great success with my band initially and eventually succeeded in loosing more than 200 lbs and was at goal. The last 30-50 pounds were lost in a very unhealthy way. I puked all the time and ended up having emergency surgery to have my band removed Sept. 19, 2008. I have regained from below 180 up to 220. I am trying to decide whether to have a second band placed or have the gastric sleeve. Sinc e weight loss was not my problem, puking was, I dont' think I need the malabsorption but I sure am scared of the sleeve. Anyonne with similiar issues please reply.
