Recommended Posts

:lol: Hi there, Diane G. here. I am new to this website. Could anyone tell me what they love about this site???? I think that would help me get aquainted with folks. I am located in Maryland right on the Chesapeake Bay. Love boats, dogs, and food (darn it) I was a good cook but I swore off from my good cooking and now cook normal healthy stuff. I will have to learn how to cook good gourmet foods. I think I will make a trip to Borders. I garden and have 3 grandgirls and no I didn't grow them in my garden. The stork brought them. Well, enough of my sillies. Hope to meet you all. Diane G. oh, band stuff!! I had surgery Nov.21,2006. I was 229 and I am down to 197. Mine is coming off slow, but I know one thing. I will never see this weight again EVER. Yeah.

I think your doing great Diane! It is slower, but it's better to lose slower. I personally like this site for support, and info you probably would not know otherwise. I was banded by Dr. Ortiz and this is the website for Obesity Control Center. There is support here that other people may be going through what your going through. Just reading and following the progress of others banded and thier stories is great. I personally am a little embarrased about posting about all my fills and unfills, but if someone can learn from my adventure, glad to save them from the headaches. Way to go on your weight loss so far.!!

Wow, you are doing great. Glad we can talk. I know that you have payed indivually for your lap band. I think that is a whole different view point from insurance banding. I want certain results just like you. You might have to pay more. Diane G.

Hello, Dianne!

I am going for the lapband surgery on April 23. I am so nervous! But it is exciting to know I can beat this weight problem once and for all!

I am from Kingman Arizona, am married and have 4 children. My baby is graduating and headed for BYU soon and I have decided it is time for

me to do something for myself - get fit! It will be great talking to all of you!

Diane, Thanks, it's been a learning exp. Just curious, when u say you think that it's a whole different view point from insurance banding, what other view point do you mean? I never thought about it. :unsure:

I have often thought about different attitudes from an insurance covered bandster. I wondered if it is similar to a new car: if you get a car that someone else paid for, you may have a more indifferent attitude about problems with it or the care of it.

When you pay about $10,000 out of your own pocket, perhaps you expect more from the band, and are more concerned about your return on investment.

And there is probably a third group out there--- those who pay out of pocket, but consider the price insignificant due to high income, assets, or resources.

It sure is an interesting subject to mention.
