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.

How do you encourage/motivate yourself to try again?

How do you encourage/motivate yourself to try again?

I was doing so well with my weight loss. Actually loss 40+ pounds with nothing but the gym and food regulation. Then a series of events took place that made it impossible to continue my three day a week routine. Yes my family makes sure that I have a car available on Tuesdays and Thursdays but what they don't understand is that because those are the only days I have the car, all of my appointments etc must be scheduled on those days so I can't get back to… read more
