Hi, AngelaV !!!!

Its Lisa !! We were banded the same day --

You look GREAT !!! Congratulations !!! =D>

I, too, should be where you are,

but didnt work it the way I should -- I'm back on track and losing again --

the best news (for me) is that while I was "off the reservation" I didnt gain

any weight !! Thats a first for me -- so I'm quite happy ! Only had that one

fill about 7 weeks after surgery - but now have another scheduled at the end

of April -- so I'm hopeful that by June I should be where I want to be -- and I'm

giving myself plenty of time.

I'm so happy for you !!!! take good care -- its wonderful to "see" you again !!!

Lisa

Hi Angel,

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You go, girl! =D> I'm planning on scheduling surgery at the clinic and saw you live in Philly. Who does your fills for you? Can you recommend someone or do you go back to Tj?

Thanks and best wishes!

Wow...you look phenomenal!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm getting banded 3/4 and have about the same amount of weight to lose, this post was just what I needed to see!!!!

I'm south of Philly in Chester County. I guess you use the Mt Laurel Fill Center. Can you give me some detail on how things work at the center...pricing, ease of scheduling, fluoro or not, docs..anything you can think of. I'm most nervous about follow up care since we are so far away from Ortiz.

Thanks!

Thanks again. God4you I will email you. As far as fills go I couldn't afford to go back to Mexico. The Mt Laurel Center was quick and very good with me. My fills keep me from stuffing my face and as soon as I'm able to eat alot and I start gaining I make an appt for a fill. My exercise was not planned at first I would just walk around the block after dinner because I got the band in the spring. After I started to loose I got more energy and tried to find a new hobby that required movement. I started playing tennis at a recreation center in the summer. When it got cold I started doing workout dvd's. In December I joined the gym and I walk on the treadmill about 4 times a week. I really try to stick with protein first. I am so happy I got the band. Alot of people had negative things to say when I first got it now they have a change of heart when they see how happy I am with everything. :rolleyes:

I am thinking of having the surgery after seeing cassie on Oprah. I am REALLY skeptical of just showing up, having the surgery and leaving 2-3 days later. What if there are complications later from the lap band or the surgical scars? did anyone else have these concerns?? I would appreciate any feedback that you may have...my family anf friends are all against me going to Tijuana to get this done...thanks!

Hi Angela,

I had my surgery on 2/29/08 and am doing great. I was wondering if there were any other women of color. How are you progressing? How much have you lost?
