A Conversation Last Night

Leave a comment

I had a conversation with someone last night about my recent weight loss. She said something about people usually lose a lot of weight in the beginning, not so much in the end… but with me… when I got the lap band done, they didn’t fill up my lap band with very much saline at first, I told her.

Unlike gastric bypass or with a mutual friend of ours and her sleeve surgery, you lose rapidly right away… then it dramatically slows down. With the lap band, it’s the opposite. Starts mega slow and depending on how you follow the strict lap band rules and how many fills you get… that determines how much you lose, etc.

From 2013, a year after my lap band to 2017 I did not have any fills in my lap band at all… because I didn’t either have insurance or my insurance wasn’t the same as Avera and a lot of cost would have been through the roof so i never followed up on getting any done so my weight loss was slow and agonizing…..End of 2017 I had 2 more fills and on the last of those 2, I had my final fill that my lap band would allow.

That’s when I was dropping weight like magic. And that’s where I am at now…. With my current job, I have amazing insurance and both fills were covered 100% so I didn’t have to pay anything out of pocket.

Plus I’m a year and a half in on my Wheat Belly lifestyle. You know, I gave up eating toxic processed shit food for the good of my health.

I hope this clears up your confusion I wrote her today. But ask me anything, I’ll do my best to give you my honest opinion.

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. As of April 2, 2018: I am no longer diabetic. I have reversed my 9 years of Type 2 diabetes. I reversed 14 years of sleep apnea. I have reversed 35 years of depression. I have reversed life long allergies. All by eliminating all wheat and all grains from my diet.
