LOVING MY BAND!!! (read about my journey and see pictures!)

Recommended Posts

HELLO!! :-h

I haven't been on in a while! Just wanted to say that it's been 5 months since my surgery with OCC, and I'm sooooo happy!! I've lost over 40 lbs, have 30 more to go. I'm eating healthier, feeling better, looking better, and want to encourage anyone out there who's not sure about getting the Lap Band, or going to Dr. Ortiz in Tijuana, that it's sooooooo worth it!!! GO!! DO IT!! :D And anyone having an upcoming surgery or a recent one, congrats!!! =D>

you look absolutely beautiful!! if you never lose another pound you will still look perfect at this height and weight!



Thank you very much!!!!!!!! :-h

I appreciate what you said because I'm actually OK with my weight right now!! I'm not obsessing about it every second of everyday, and it's so liberating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have some "banded" and other WLS friends who just obsess and obsess about their weight and they never seem happy no matter how much they've lost!!!

Now my goal is to REALLY start exercising and firm up!!!

hugs! ><'
