3 years have past and things are different on here. This site use to be positive, but now it's just a negative mess.

Well here is some positive info on me!!! I am 3 years post op..... 4/9/2009!

 I lost a total of 134 pounds!

 Became pregnant in February 2011, but lost the baby in April 2011.

 Gained 10 pounds due to eating too much ice cream and having a pity party for myself.

 Became pregnant again in July 2011! Gained 55 pound!!! Had my beautiful daughter on 4/3/2012.

 I've already lost 31 pounds (No I'm not breast feeding)

 I have 24 pounds to go!!!! Going to take my time. Slowly increasing my exercise a week at a time!!!!

 My point is the BAND works..... If you don't want the BAND then don't get it. All weight loss surgery takes work and it's a PERSONAL CHOICE!!!!!!

 Please be respectful of others!!!!!!! Don't bash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Oh! 10 cc band with 8.3cc's in it.

Unfortuately, we are not bashing.  We are just sharing our experiences, not trying to be negative.  I"m happy that the band is working for you.

That finger wagging was just a bit crass, don't you think?

Nothing here has changed, the only thing that is different is there are more banded people with failed bands telling their story.  That isn't bashing and it's not disrespectful however it is kind of disrespectful to expect only happy, peppy, perky people will post only positives and those with problems need to go away.

Please, try to be nice.

I see that you became a member in 2012...... Right????? I became a member in 2009. So were you on here in 2009???? Things have changed and I'm allowed that post my point of view. There are complications with the band, a good surgeon and office staff would have explained that.

About being happy.... Yes, I'm happy that I researched the band for 2 years prior to having the surgery.

Peppy..... Yes, I do have way more pep. My ankles don't swell any more and my knees and hips don't cause me pain anymore. Now I am able to run after my children.

Perky..... I guess you can say I am!

The Lap Band system is a tool you have to work it, but It's a personal choice what you put in your mouth.
