Hi! I joined yesterday but felt a bit overwhelmed by all of the information. I had lapband surgery in March 08. I lost 43 lb quickly and just recently gained 9 back. Besided being unhappy about my "gain ", I have never really "finished " my weightloss and reached my goal weight. I guess life just got in the way. Not anymore! I dug out all of my lapband material and reread it all which is how I stumbled on this site. I am hoping to reach my goal weight of 127 by May.
