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.

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!
