I LOVE my Lap Band!

Monday, December 31st, 2007

2007 I love my lap band!As I look back over 2007 the one thing that sticks out most in my mind is getting my lap band. I started looking into what it was and how it worked in late winter and decided by mid-spring that this was the answer for me. I’m glad, now, that it was such a tough journey to get information, find the right doctor and get the surgery. In having to fight for this I knew without a shadow of a doubt this was for me.

The pre-op and first month was really tough. Not because of the pain, but it messes with you emotionally. I’m not sure how to adequately put it into words, except that it brings up every food issue you have and even creates some new ones. I had a lot of prayer chats with God. I’m just so grateful I had a few hundred online friends to go through it with and a wonderfully supportive family.

I’m healed and I’ve had 4 small fills. I still haven’t hit my sweet spot but I’m losing slow and steady. So far I’m down 30lbs and due for my next fill in a few days.

I’m still learning how to use my lap band for all it’s worth. I’m improving my eating habits and exercise more and more each day. I LOVE my band!!! It was the best thing I have ever done for myself. 2007 was a great year, but it was just the start!
