After 2 years of research and contemplation, I have finally been banded! This journey has been a long one. 2 years ago I backed out of surgery because I thought I could do it on my own. HA!!! What was I thinking?! Not only did I gain an extra 20 lbs. that now I have to take off but my self esteem went to the crapper! It is a big blow when you realize you can not control the food...it controls you.
After my new inquiry into Lap Band, it took 4 weeks until my surgery. I can honestly say it was a GREAT decision. I have not wanted my old eating habits back at all. I have dropped 32 lbs in 4 weeks. WHOO-HOO! I am no longer on the big 300 side! What a relief. I will not go down that dark alley again. Screw the donuts! Krispy Kreme no longer has a hold on me.
I am excited to be on my new journey. I am sure there will be ups and downs but, I realize now that I am bound to make a few mistakes. When the mistakes happen, I will pick myself up and get back on that wagon. I want to be strong, healthy and one kick-ass hot momma!
