I responded directly to Arlene on the FB page that she should go to the seminar/meeting and learn all that she can about the band and ask questions. I also told her that the band isn't a quick fix and that a lot of work would still be needed on her part (exercise, good food choices, etc).
Here's what I would add, in my opinion:
- Good: I stay full longer with less food. I have resolved all of my health issues (high blood pressure, etc) with the 111 lbs weight loss! I wear size 6 jeans and size small tops! I'm not so tired anymore. My back doesn't hurt in the morning. My feet aren't in pain and swollen at the end of the day. I could go on and on about the "good."
- Bad: the band doesn't control my head hunger...when are they going to come out with a surgery that fixes our brain. Seriously. Also, that I can eat and eat and eat slider foods (ice cream, cookies, chips, etc). The band does not limit my intake of those foods.
- Ugly: Perhaps the dreaded PB (productive burp) or being stuck? Not sure, as I have not yet experienced this, yet.
Why would she NOT want to get a band?
