Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself and perhaps be of help to anyone regarding WLS. I had a VBG (vertical banded gastroplasty) back in 2000. I started out at 250 and lost 115 in about 1 year getting to a gorgeous 135. But.....after a pregnancy and bad habits I have gained 52 lovely pounds. The surgery is still a blessing, I can still only eat small amounts but I have been choosing to eat crappy food. But I am here to change that! I have lost 8 pounds just by watching my calories (I'm allowing myself 1500 per day) so I know I can do this! I will get my pictures up for you all to look at. I am so happy I found this group and I hope I can be of help as well!
