When in doubt - blog it out
ok -I am going to give this a try. Just had my lap band placed on Tuesday the 20th. I am already feeling fearful - like "what in the heck have I done"?!!!
This is truly not like anything else I have ever done before. I can't take it back. I am no longer in control of what I put in my mouth - my stomach is going to govern my habits!
In some ways it feels as if I am losing some of my best friends, like popcorn, chocolate, cakes, cookies. In other ways it feels like I took charge of something that has had a hold on me for years and years.
Could it be possible to spend my remaining 30 or so years on this planet a thinner, healthier me? I don't know, I am scared and frightened that I will not succeed.
