Well, I am honestly considering this surgery. I have 2 friends who have had it done and They have had great results. I am at 315 lbs. I have been dieting for 5 weeks and lost 13.5 lbs in the first 2 weeks by eating very little processed food and keeping about 1200-1500 calories/day. Here is the problem. After the first 2 weeks I have not lost any more wieght. This happens when I go to the gym as well. i will loose 10-15 lbs and then stop losing. My 2 friends ( a co-worker and an old college friend) have had the same experiences and had the surgery. They say it changed thier life dramatically. Has anyone here had any experience with this procedure?
