Hi all. Had my band over 3 years ago and lost 25 kilos. Now I know its no excuse. Bit 8 months ago I got ll the fluid taken out cause I was not in a good place. Proceeded to eat crap and lots of it. Put a lot back on. My family and issues are now sorted and I'm seeing mg Dr on Friday to start getting my fills again. And back on the road to losing. anyone else re setting and startinf over.... Thanks. Lannie.
Hey Everyone, My name is Sam, I am new, I mean really new, I haven't even had my initial appointment yet.... that's happening on the 3rd of Jan. I am hoping to make a few friends in here to go through the journey with me. Hopefully some people in Brisbane, and with similar goals to me... umm wanting to loose half of themselves. actually i don't want to lose it, i want to evict 65kg and get a restraining order! a bit about me: 46 yo body, much younger mentally. doing a fine art degree at QCA Southbank. Graphic Artist. good sense of humour, totally tactless, stubborn, determined. I live out near Indooroopilly. I have been looking at lapband surgery for a number of years, in the past i would convince myself i could do it myself, and i would, i would lose the weight, through hard work and willpower. unfortunately my weight is stubborn and always found its way back again and just cause its kinda friendly would bring home a few extras with it, so at my lightest i have been 65kg, and at my heaviest 135kg, Oh i am 173cm tall, and healthy other than being over weight. my weight is always up and down, last Christmas i was 95kg.. its just madness. I am hoping the Lapband will be the tool that will help me control the weight once i get it off. I know its still going to be lots of hard work and willpower, but the band i am hoping will be like a little control freak inside me that will force me to be aware always of how much i put in my mouth. and basically wanted some friends to share the journey with, strength in numbers and all that ya know. sooo..... anyone feelin the same I would love to hear from you. in here or via email: email@example.com (hope that's allowed, err stalkers need not apply) Sam... oh ps, if i posted this in the wrong space.. sorry, i will do better next time.
Hi all, I have been a tad foolish and gained some weight, 129.1 kilos and that is not a good thing, I have not been to see my doctor either for 2 months since my first fill. I guess I kinda freaked out about the whole band thing and being a bit lost in general at the moment has not been a good thing to feel or deal with at the same time as trying to deal with the band, but no matter, I am back on the forum to motivate myself o break out of this headspace. Well enough self pity,the only way is up from now on.
