EXCELLENT ARTICLE TODAY ON LAPBAND, BARIATRIC SURG..



Recommended Posts

On the main page of Yahoo today, there is an excellent article about bariatric surgery and it's pros and cons which includes the story of Al Roker....After this article, some Drs. and experts in the field give their opinions.....I think it's a good read....Many, many succeed, some fail!.....I, like Al Roker, was the latter.....To those that are well on their way to success, may God bless, and to those who have faced disappointment, there is ALWAYS hope!!!!....HANG IN THERE.....Eventually you'll find the infanous "KEY!" :(

I'm not sure if I read the right one, it was by the huffington post. But I felt like it portrayed WLS in a negative light, by saying most people who receive surgery could end up as drug abusers and a percentage commit suicide... Very scary

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
