  1. Working towards gastric sleeve

    I got my band in July 2007 in Hawaii. I lost almost 50 lbs in the first 5 months or so on it. Shortly after that I moved to Nevada. I took on a stressful job and I noticed that I was vomiting a lot. I had my band unfilled, filled, unfilled, filled. I just kept vomiting. I now weigh 10 lbs more that when I had the band.

He was so shocked and complimentary on my weight loss. I also ran into a whole bunch of other friends from before my promotion in July. ...

  5. Almost 5 Years Out this MAY

    I will be 5 years out this May and I am still doing great. I can eat a little more now and I am in a bad habit of eating things I shouldn't eat. I am currently 174 lbs and would like to get to 160. I am starting today getting back on track. If anyone has any encouragement, I would love to hear it. Has anyone kinda of started over with liquids for a week and then start adding good food back in to get back on track after being several years out from surgery?
