71.5kg now

Went and got a free health check (sugar / cholesterol and blood pressure) and are are at mid to lower part of 'normal'.

Couldn't be happier.

Just wish I did it before I started to see the change.

Great product for those who like sugar in their drinks or on cereal and in cooking etc This is a naturally sourced product and it tastes sweet like sugar and has no chemical taste because it is not chemical. It is called Xylitol and is cheapest when bought in bulk. I buy 20kg sacks. Health food shops and supermarkets carry some things with Xylitol in them, but I think to buy the granules like sugar, try health food stores or online. if anyone's keen I can pass on our supplier.

Xylitol, like most polyols, tends to give people wind/diarrhoea in larger amounts... YMMV

Back in 2007 I had a lapband fitted., Initially lost a fair bit, and yes considerably slowed my eating. But as time went on I learnt to force food bast the band and blew out to 130Kg.

So now I have (Jan 21 2017) had the lapband removed and had a gastric bypass.

Am down to 118kg (7 kg since surgery)

I will keep you updated.

P.S. Last night was my first day off a liquid only diet and now on a puree diet for a week.

I had a small tin of Baked Beans for dinner.....More than enough to fill me up.

My wife had the same done in March 2016 and she is now flat out being able to eat 3 chicken nuggets before being full.

I don't think enough emphasis is placed on the psychological reasons for eating. They are so quick to do the surgery, not so quick on the therapy. I haven't heard of one successful case which points to another disastrous medical 'trend' with one way benefits.

My wife & I have both used Xylitol exclusively for over three years and have never had any issues changing from sugars to this. Xylitol is also w natural bacteria killer. It doesn't cause decay so each night after brushing, put a quarter of a teaspoon in your mouth & swish around. Neither of us have had any decay or dentist dramas since we started doing this. Both of us 'round 50yo, so teeth have seen some work & dramas here and there. Anyway, highly recommended because A: it works and B: it tastes great, just like sugar and you can cook with it and treat it just like sugar. Anybody who has looked into sugar knows it is a killer, literally, and not just for bigger people.

Forgive my ignorance but I'm keen to hear your opinions on my situation. I'm a tall slim build, 6'3" and weigh in at 93 kg. I maintain a fairly regular exercise regime in the gym working all muscle groups with the aim of maintaining good general fitness and perhaps make it to 95 plus kg with muscle mass and low body fat. The issue is I hit the wall some days about 45 mins through my workout, especially if it's a leg/ lower body day,now, if I have a sugar hit it gets me going and all is good,but hey it's not ideal. I usually work out later in the afternoon and always eat a good lunch about 4 hours before working out. I have one or two coffees a day. There are pre workout supplements which I assume are caffeine,energy drinks etc etc. just curious to hear anyone's thoughts on this?

I Know a couple of guys who had lapbands, and I reckon it did more harm than good.
The official line, about it creating a "pouch" or a smaller stomach at the top, just seems to be BS. What it does is choke your guts so that eating ANYTHING becomes difficult. Initially they lost weight, because they just couldn't eat anything. Eventually they had to get the band deflated just so they could eat.
And the problem then is what they could and did eat. Salads and Veggies were completely out. The best he could manage for dinner was mashed potato with extra butter, and a bit of gravy to flavour it up. Followed by custard and icecream for desert.

I have contemplated the Gastric Sleeve. All-round it seems the best option. I am just worried it will leave my stomach TOO small.

For the moment, I have finally taken the plunge and just started eating healthy. I have cut out most meat, most bulk carbs, all cheese, and a lot of my dairy and sugar. I'm down to one latte a day, with splenda, and occasionally a little bit of diet yoghurt.
Whilst the kilos are only coming off slowly, the amazing thing is just how much better I feel. No gut problems, no bloating, more energy, etc.

My scales are inaccurate, so I don't get too hung up on minor movements. But I started at around 140, and am now around 135.
