My apologizes to this forum. My intentions were never to get people all worked up. I had assumed that since this is message board was for weight loss that I would be able to find support and friendship here. I have found much info here, most of the support on threads I've read have negative intentions. Thank you to many of the posters that replied so I know that I am not alone with my comments.
There are certain posters that rarely have anything positive to say or if they do they just can't help themselves and add their own hurtful comments, pictures and wishing poor outcome for others.
I have had my band for almost a year and doing well. ( sorry if that makes anyone angry).
Any newbies reading this... be careful not to get your feelings hurt if you post and feel attacked. To some, you are like fresh blood in the ocean and there are a few sharks in here !
Stay strong and feel good with your decision and if IF the day comes that you regret the decision... remember it was yours to make, just as it was every ones.
Again, I am sorry if I offended some... happy to point out weaknesses in others and thankful for the posters who saw my point.
