    I had lap band done Nov 2012. Highest weight 402
    surgery weight 370
    got down to 212
    am back up to 248
    goal weight 150
    I just had an adjustment last week as was throwing up a lot and had terrible acid reflex. Problem now is they took out about half and I can eat meat and bread again. Have to get this under control. I admit I am scared

    This is a great post and thank you! I've read through all of these and it helped tons!

    Program start weight 312 lb. Pre-surgery 8 months later 277lbs. Full goal weight hit at around 10 months post op of 147 lbs. Currently almost 3 years post op and 156 lbs. However, when I go past 157, I panic and get back to it. Female, age 51.

    Been difficult at the two year mark for urges but not being able to eat a lot and trying to find a good balance of getting nutrients, eating healthy and eating what I still can. I am at a point now that I feel good about my balance and my daily menu. I work overnight; doubly hard-especially with many 16 hour day shifts as needed. Got tough for awhile to really balance that with eating, finding sleep and trying to stay awake. I feel pretty normal now though.

    Nightmares of overeating and gaining weight continue but less frequent.

    Happiest I've ever been in life!

    Starting weight 238, Surgery day weight 223
    Current weight 126-129 depending on the day
    What keeps me successful -Weighing myself every morning, logging my food in my fitness pal every day, walking 5-7 days per week
