Does anyone else ever just not want to eat?

Does anyone else ever just not want to eat?

There are days sometimes multiple days in a row where nothing sound goods, I'm not hungry, and I could just care less about eating and have to almost force myself to eat. I hate feeling like this and dont know what to do and then usually eating a ton of junk cause it's easy to eat.

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band

Mine really isnt a question as much qs a statement. The Band does NOT reduce the size of your stomach!! It reduces the size of the opening to your stomach. Making smaller bites feel like much larger bites... your 'pouch' abive the band is not to be 'filled' as a stomach would; it is to slow your eating down.... banded since 2013.

Does anyone get angry over weight?

Does anyone get angry over weight?

I have more desire to lose weight than I can express. Yet, some of my disability keeps me from doing things that can help me shed that weight. I want to go on a supplement, but all of them require exercise.. I can't exercise because of my Dystonia. I get so angry because I KNOW all the right things to do, but I can't do them! How do you deal with the war going on in your head over weight issues?
