Hi again all,

Thanks for all the support, & it's great to see everyone else doing so well too :)

I've lost 53kg now. I would still like to lose another 7, but am finding it pretty slow going. I am quite toned up now, & am pretty happy with where I'm at (77kg) Been around this weight for quite a few months.

The first pic is my progress photos, last one around Christmastime
My latest photo from April Image

:shock: WOW! Your transformation has been amazing, well done Bandit!

Have you had any negative side effects from the band? I've heard nasty stories so I hope not!

Congratulations again, you must be so proud of yourself :mrgreen:

I've never considered lap band so don't know much about it, What happens now that you are at goal? Do you have to have another op?

You look so happy now! Congratulations on your weight loss you look fantastic!

Sorry I haven't checked in for a while, & thanks for all the positive comments :)

The band is only a tool to make you feel full on small portions, but it's up to the owner to make the most of that by eating healthier foods & exercising. Icecream, milkshakes, chocolate & other liquid kilojoules will pass through the band easily. I still eat/drink all those things occasionally, but have found that the intense cravings I had for them pre-band have lessened considerably.

Ali76 - It hasn't been all smooth sailing. Late last year I had a very painful 'band slip' which required some time in hospital, & all my saline removed for a couple of months (over Christmas!) which was just like being unbanded again. Despite this, I'd do it all again for the results I've had.

Moomoo - Saline is injected into an invisible port (painless 30 second procedure at the dr), which goes through a tube into a 'balloon' around the inside of the band,gradually tightening it. As you lose, you are able to eat a little more, so more saline is added. Once goal is reached, or you become pregnant or any other reason that more food is required, some/all saline may be removed to loosen the band. I am basically at a maintenance level now.

Good luck to you all, i know just how hard it is, having lost countless times the traditional way :? . I wish you all success, & I love seeing all the before after pics!
