Hi all, I am in the same boat as all of you are, but my Lap band was Sept 2008. I began to hit a plateau and then i saw the numbers begin to rise. They didnt go up too much but I really dont want them going any higher than they are now at all. I am doing what you all are doing. See I stay with my 92 y/o grandfather at night and there are bad snacks around and i am in a situation where it is easy to grab a handful of chips or a couple of cookies or two or three small candy bars or a "little debbie" cake, cause nobody else sees. and it is boring. there is not a lot of possibility for exercise, so i sit and i eat and i read, so i gain. so here is my delima, and sounds like we can become friends and help one another out and be supportive in our similar situations.
