Hi John. I'm in a similar situation. My band is still in from 2014 but I don't really use it. It got me down from 265 to 220 but since so I had most of the fluid let out a year ago, my weight is creeping back up again.
I have been been thinking of saving up for a revision but am intrigued by your success with intermittent fasting. Can you recommend any resources that you used?
I had my band put in 2008 and hear some horror stories and get nervous from time to time but never had real issues. I haven't been on for years as well.I have lost 71lbs with the lap band and back at it I'm trying hard now in the gym everyday and eating healthy. I am trying Keto/IF as well just started and hoping for similar success. Do you count calories? or just eat 4 hour windows a couple of meals ?
thanks for sharing
Me too. Mine was placed in 03. I unfilled so long ago I don't remember why
I had my band 14 yes. Unfilled about a year. Gained 10 pounds from goal. Lower carb high protein helps me. My skinny husband does the fasting. He was 200 at his highest and is 159 today. Do what works and great job!
Hello , I have had nothing but problems with my lap band . I've had it since 2006.
I am scheduled to have it removed October . I have not eaten a good meal in years without the food getting stuck . I have no restriction in the bad at all . Just had a gastroscopy to see if I could remove it and it can be done .
I have hiccups all day long and I think I it's the band and now the heart burn is so bad GERD!!!!!
Good luck and congratulations on your weight loss . I am also following a keto / low carb life style .
