I’ve lost 2 stone since my band (mine was 7th nov), and I’ve only had one fill. I’ve stayed the same over Christmas as I’ve eaten in between meals as well. The way I look at it is that I’ve lost 2 st that I wouldn’t have lost before the band, and for the first time ever I haven’t put weight on over Christmas!! I’ve got back on track now and stopped the snacking now that the extra food isn’t in the house and I’ve increased my exercise with 4 dance classes per week (shifts permitting) and also kettle bell weights at home. Well done for what you’ve lost so far – as we all know having the band fitted isn’t the easy way out but as long as you stick with it and work with your band it will work for you.

I love coming on here to read about other people’s experiences – it makes me realise I’m not the only one going through this and that its the quick fix that a lot of people believe it is – its a major life change forever.

Absolutely Lynne. Wls isn’t like having a wand waved over you so that you suddenly lose weight, stop being addicted to food or using it to self medicate, and it’s certainly not bloomin easy! The media are so ignorant on that fact and it makes people think we are lazy, hopeless cases who don’t want to change our lives for the better!! NOTHING could be further form the truth. If we have come to the ‘last chance saloon’ regarding our weight, we are probably the MOST determined people of all.

Well done on your success so far, but most of all for your fantastically positive attitude ;-))
