Tired - Want to give my band another try

on 10/22/21 12:05 pm

I had lap band surgery in 2009. Lost 50 pounds. Have gained some back. I've had some esophagus issues. I've tried different things- seeing a dietitian. She wants me on 1400 calorie diet. I've not been able to lose anything. My body is just not adjusting to this. I want to try using my band again to lose my weight. I've played with this for years. I don't want to go through another surgery. I'm tired of hauling this weight around, the knee pain, back pain & other medical issues. Could someone give me advice as to how to stay focus & do this? Thank you.

I have to stay under 900 calories a day to drop one pound a week. I maintain on 1400.

Thank you so much for your comments. I'm just tired of trying to fit in other people's boxes. I'm tired of letting my weight control me. I know what to do my problem is staying consistent & doing it.

I can't .... because I don't believe in the band ... however whatever works for you I'll support.

How can we help you ?
