I'm Thankful For...My Lap-Band
I'm thankful for my lap-band. Today I had my 6 month checkup (even though it's not technically for 12 more days). I am confident that I would not have lost the amount of weight that I have without the help of the lap-band. In the past I have been able to lose weight, but because the amount of weight that I needed to lose I would get frustrated and eventually go back to the way I was eating before and gain that weight back and often more. Thankfully the Lap-Band doesn't let me go back to the way I was eating before. There are certain things that I can't eat and certain things I just don't want to eat.
It still hasn't been easy. I still have to make good food choices and I still have to workout consistently, but the lap-band definitely helps be to not be as hungry and to stay away from foods I know I shouldn't eat anyway (e.g. BREAD!).
I'm thankful that I was able to pay for the surgery and to have this tool to help me lose weight and become healthier!
