Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Multiple Medical N Weight Loss (outside The Us)
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

Well been here for a while reading and posting on occasion. But never really read anyone who is similar to our living issues.

We are on disability which as many know means u live (survive) under the poverty line (under since u dont even make the base poverty line income). We live in a monthly basis of being food deprived so eating one meal a day is very much the norm. It isnt health but it becomes the only option. We depend on local food pantries for supply of fresh veg once a month and… read more

Severe Sweating After Every Meal
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm 3+ years post op (VSG) sleeve surgery. I severely sweat with EVERY meal no matter what it is... Sometimes up to 30 minutes afterwards. It doesn't matter what I'm eating, even if it's just a protein shake. Does anyone else have this problem? It's not dumping with EVERY matter what I'm eating.

Which Diet To Go For?
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

So have heard a lot about blood group diets and the miracle cabbage soup diet. I just want to know...
1. How safe are they?
2. Do they really work?
3. Would you advice me to go on any of them?

A MyObesityTeam Member

Whats worked for me more then any diet or plan is portion control and eating good nutritious food and moving doing anything like walking or whatever you like to do has exercise.

Does Anyone Get Angry Over Weight?
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A MyObesityTeam Member

From everything I have read, most studies haven't really went into other conditions. They tend to stick with Dystonia as the primary issue or a secondary issue caused by Parkinson's, MS, etc.

When I… read more
