I had Lap Band surgery.
I have lost a total of 111 lbs in about 14 months and now am maintaining my goal weight of 145 lbs.
I participate in both online and in-person weight loss surgery support groups. I encourage other lap band patients to explore all the online community has to offer, especially blogs and videos (YouTube). There is a wealth of information out there from eating tips, exercise ideas, and most of all support and motivation from others experiencing the same things that you are.
In addition, I enjoy attending my surgeon’s support groups as well for that in-person and face-to-face support and feedback.
