Resetting and learning to go back to basics
I was a revision VSG from LapBand in 2013. I lost and kept off nearly 100 from my LapBand. Then it slipped and was removed.... I had nearly a year of waiting and being denied for revision until I was nearly back up 60 pounds. The sleeve has not given me the restriction I wanted, but truthfully I was not compliant and not ready to take responsibility for my actions until just the last month. By applying the basic rules for a sleeve (and getting off my butt) I have dropped 15 pounds and feeling very positive. I use my blog (band2banana.blogspot.com) sort of as a journal for my journey and other non weight related stuff. I log my food and exercise daily and looking for friends to share similar experiences. I strongly believe that my failure with the VSG was not reaching out for support earlier.
