Hi Day Dreamer, I had a band done on the 23rd march. I had tried for over 2.5 years jumping through the NHS loops to get funding. I researched everything, looking at forums. I have beenover weight since child hood and tried everything, petty much like every one on here who will support you.

I can honestly say that making the choice to have l.lthe band has been the best choice I have ever made in my life…… I have lost 4 and a half stone since the pre op diet which is great and a shock in such a short time. I have dropped 3 dress sizes and looking forward to mynholiday abroad in a month without a seatbelt exension!!!!!! This was the worst part of it for me!

The only thing to bear in mind is that whilst it will take you time to ajust to our new life, and it is easier with a band in terms of what you can eat, you will still need to have the mindset of eating healthily as it isnt the “east way out” as some people think, like Doodah says…….people should try and be in our shoes!!!!!

Having said that even though I still have a way to go for my own goals, I would not change anything forthe wrold as my confidence in myself is amazing and it what is spurring me on…..

I told the people closest to me and some work colleagues that arepart of my team, butnafter I hadthe surgery and began to realise hat actually thisnis still ME doing this withnthe help of my faithful band, I tell them that I am just eating healthy and reduced my portion size!!!! No lie there as that is just whats happening.

Happy to keep in touch if you want to message me personally and ask any questions…..

GOOD LUCK
Sam
