And The Lapband Worked For Me

I am a grazer....but the Lapband worked for me.

I have been overweight my entire teen and adult life...but the Lapband worked for me.

I was lazy, didn't work out, drank copious amounts of regular soda....but the Lapband worked for me.

There were times over the last two years that I over ate, over drank, under moved, and chose poor choices....but the Lapband still worked for me.

I was morbidly obese. My weight and height combo weren't even on some of the BMI charts in my doctors office...but the Lapband STILL worked for me.

And I worked with it.

And I still am.

There are a lot of people or things out there that say "nah...this isn't for you."

But it was. It is. And I am grateful for those people who believe in me, push me, encourage me, love me, and support me. I am grateful for this little tube around my stomach. I am grateful for all of you.

Happy Friday my friends.

Keep fighting the good fight.


  1. Boy did it work for you! Great little post!

  2. You rocked that little tube. And people who say it isn't right for someone else is either jealous or never been overweight. (Which is the case 95% of the time!)

  3. It does work! I just want it to work for me WITHOUT the allergic reaction...that's all I want right now.

    As always, you are an inspiration!

  4. That "it worked for you" is an understatement. You define the best of what the band can do.

  5. Yes! You should send this, this EXACT post and a photo of your awesome self to Ruby Gettinger. That woman with the show. Seriously. Do it.

  6. FABULOUS post! I have a few people that said it won't work for me...I'm determined to prove them wrong!

  7. This is the kinds of things I need to read! I have been stuck and feeling like I'll never get past my goal, but I can do it...I have to learn to work the band for the next phase is all.

  8. LOVE this post!

    So many think if you don't do it one particular way, it won't work. If you don't count calories, if you drink carbonated beverages, if you eat more than twice a day, blah blah blah. IT WORKED FOR YOU and that is what matters. LOVE!
