After all this time

Sunday, February 22, 2015

I am back after a long absence. I kind of forgot all about this as time went on. In December 2013, I made the difficult decision to have WLS, a lapband placed. I felt ashamed that I could not do this on my own, but it turns out this is one of the best decisions I have made for myself.

No, having a lapband is not a quick fix. It did jumpstart my weight loss, but as with many other things, it is a tool. I am still retraining myself to eat clean, always be conscious of my portions and exercise and of course, drink water, water, water and then some more water.

I had a friend encourage me, so I decided that the social aspect was something I was missing and decided to look this up again and give it another try.

    The social aspect has been very helpful to me. Before I was only discussing things with my mom and SIL, which was helpful, but not ALL I needed. The encouragement and I get (and give to) from others makes a big difference in seeing this as a lifestyle change rather than a diet.
