Where do people go?

I've been blogging for nearly eight years not (not always very regularly) but when I go through my old saved list of "blogs I used to read" so many have not been updated for a few years or have become private so I can't read them.

And, no, blogger, I have no idea how to contact the owner of the blog and ask for permission!

But what piques my curiosity most is what happened to the  bandsters who have stopped blogging?  Did they all reach goal weight, forget about their bands and go on to live happily every after?

Did they have their bands removed?

Did they regain all their weight?

Have a different surgery?

Please if you read this and used to blog, do post in the comments to let me know how you are doing!

August update

Gosh it is ages since I updated. My plan to weigh in once a month on a print out machine is working well and I'm down to 137 pounds with clothes on.  Lowest I've been in two years, so I'm happy. 

Other things that are helping are trying not to eat unless my stomach is rumbling or I'm feeling light headed.  Doesn't always work, I'm really bad at snacking - current obsession is bread sticks with garlic dip.

I still can't eat a full meal, and do eat much more slowly than anyone I know. My friends and family are used to it and I've got the hang of "picking and pushing" so it looks like I'm eating more if I'm in a more formal situation.

Sorry to see some of my favourite bloggers have gone private - A Brand New Roo? or just stopped blogging (come  back My Weightloss Expedition)

I'm coming up to 8 yrs out in December, wow. It is sad to see how many people have lost their bands or their band has failed them since then. Loads of revisions to sleeve and bypass around. I've been very blessed to be doing ok, despite the odd wobble. Not had an adjustment for ages now. I really should go for an xray check up, but haven't got round to it.

Life of course is not as simple as a band and I'd hate to give the impression that I'm sitting here smugly happy. Lol if only.  But for all my hassles at least weight is one I can score off the list.
