I just wanted to say how happy I am that I received the lap band. My surgery date was 8-19-08, and I have kept off 123 lbs. This was the best decision I could have made!! I run now for the first time in my life, and am training for a 1/2 marathon. I never dreamed in a million years that I would have such an active lifestyle!!
Gina6.4cc in 10cc band 3cc at time of surgery; 1st fill 3cc; 2nd fill 0.4cc
Nice to hear from another successful bandster! Congrats on your weight loss and exercise. I am almost 4 years out and starting to work my band again. I lost 80 LBS and kept it off for 3 1/2 years, I just had a fill a couple of months ago and are almost down another 20 LBS so I am still working my band and I have 2 pounds to go to reach 100 LBS lost and 4 LBS to go to get to onderland hoping to get there by Labor Day.
Congrats to you! I am just beginning my journey & find myself getting alittle frustrated at times thingking I'm not gonna lose the weight fast enough but then think I didn't gain it overnight so I'm sure the heck not gonna lose it overnight. I can't wait to get to the point in my life where you are in yours!
Way to go, your bandiversary is coming up, happy early bandiversary!! Good luck on your 1/2 marathon. I too, have begun to run, exercise 5 days a week and am thankful for my band, too.
Keep up the good work!!
