I read this post on another bandster’s blog and wanted to share it –

I know a lot of you out there have only heard of the Lap-Band but aren’t really familiar with EXACTLY what it is. 

Let me just start by addressing some negative ideas about the Lap-Band that I have encountered.

* “CHEATER! Lap-Band is the easy way out…the magic pill.”

—-You couldn’t be more wrong…. The Lap-Band is anything but easy, The Lap-Band is simply a tool for weight loss, just like anything else anyone else does (weight watchers, Atkins, pills, shakes etc…) Just like any other tool, when used incorrectly it doesn’t work.

* “The Lap-Band keeps you from eating all the bad foods.”
—–Wrong again! Most people who are banded can still basically eat whatever they want. The Lap-Band does not make healthy food choices for you, that’s still up to you.

* “So once you get the Lap-Band, you will lose all your weight really quick.”

—–Everybody now… WRONG! The lap band will only help you lose up to 60% of your excess body fat. The rest is completely up to how hard you are willing to work.

My 8-year quest of being BANDED finally happened on June 27, 2012!!! While it will be nice to shed some pounds, my number one goal is to get HEALTHY ... And to get off ALL my diabetic meds and not have to rely on my CPAP at night and for naps. A few years back I made a decision to only surround myself with positive people and I have never looked back. At times I may be snarky perhaps a little wonky and I will apologize right now if I offend anyone as I blog about my life as I know it. Peace & love to all of my wonderful supporters.
