jen16 posted a topic in Frequently Asked QuestionsHi Bandits, I was talking to my neighbour this morning about being banded, and she had some interest in looking into it especially after I was banded. She has tried everything from shakes to weight watchers and things in between with no long term benefit. This lady is like a second mum to me, and there's nothing more I would like, than to see her succeed with much needed weight loss. After praising this forum so much, I thought I might actually ask the question she really wanted to know... 'Have many of you sustained your weight loss long term (over 2 or 3 years if not longer?) and how is you health and lifestyle now?' My beautiful neighbour is a mum to 3 grown up kids, with the youngest still living at home, but she works a full time job, and often finds herself forgetting to eat as she gets very busy at work (even though good intentions are brought to work everyday ie yogurt/fruit etc). She has a short lunch break which she likes to fit in a daily walk. What she eats for dinner is often swayed by what her son wants. She is a fabulous cook. She knows if she gets upset or overly emotional, she'll head for food which she's trying to stop. Post Christmas she is going to try light n' easy for a fully committed few months. If she see's positive results she may stick with this but I thought its better to ask then to not know. Hopefully there's enough of you who can answer this question above, so a preemptive thank you for your input. Jen xx
