Attitude is Everything

Had an interesting conversation with a male co-worker the other day. He asked me what I thought about lapband surgery, as his heart doctor had suggested it to him. What I found sort of interesting was that he knew that I had surgery. It's one of those things where I haven't necessarily kept it hidden, but I also haven't shouted it from the roof tops either, so it makes me wonder who's been talking about me LOL. Anyway, it felt kinda good to tell someone that I was having a great experience with my lapband. I can honestly say I have not experienced any negative drawbacks from having lapband. I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone. But I would also say that attitude is everything.

That little piece of silicone and titanium is just a small piece of the puzzle. If you aren't ready to make the commitment to changing several aspects of your life then you aren't ready for lapband. There are changes emotionally, socially, changes in the choices you have and you still need to work hard at weight loss including choosing high quality foods and exercising. Anyway, I was reading a couple of other blogs tonight and was sensing that not everyone is feeling great about their choices, I am just glad I can say that I have no qualms about choosing lapband surgery. I am so glad that I have been lucky enough to have a good experience so far and hope that holds true in the future.

It was a good day on the scale today, as I saw 245 again. I went for a two mile walk tonight and also went 2 miles yesterday too. I was right on target choosing good food today too. I am just two pounds away from losing 60 pounds. That is so awesome! Can't wait to see 243 on the scale hopefully in a week or two.

  1. Great job, only 2 lbs from 60! I too am 100% glad I got the band...even if it is not always well-behaved!
