Pre-op when the nurse told me I needed to loose 32 lbs. to qualify for surgery I wondered how on Earth I would accomplish it. It seemed like an insurmountable task. "32 lbs!," I cried, "If I could loose 32 lbs. I wouldn't need Lap-Band," I complained.
Fast forward 5 months...................
I have 36 more pounds to loose until I hit Onederland. My thoughts now........
36 lbs. is nothing! I will kick 36 lbs.' ass before Christmas.
Why the change? Well, I definitely have more confidence in my abilities these days. And my confidence has come from being banded.
The band has given me back my self-confidence that had been weighed down by 318 lbs.
