Why didnt I move my A$$ more ? My ONE Regret w/ the Band !

A friend of mine contacted me today about lap band. She's having a consult next week for hers. So I was going back and re reading some of my old blog posts. I really needed to read some of them right now .
I go Thursday for my fill . Its been over a year since I have been unfilled and close to 40 pounds gained. WHY ?

I would say the ONE THING I Screwed up on and one thing i regret about the band is not moving more, not getting on a regular exercise routine from the get go . I KNEW if something were to happen to my band, it slipped, needed to be removed I would HAVE to have a plan to at least help keep the weight off. I did not though, I did not move , I did not work out . I made the mistake of thinking that being more active would be enough .

Guess what folks ? I am here to say I was wrong and here to show you 40lbs heavier wrong !

I will say this , I HOPE this fill can give me another shot at it .
I Plan to start over. I hope this is the beauty of the band. That I CAN Start over !
This is what I have always thought was the good part about the band. NOW I WILL SEE !


  1. Amen. It also keeps us from losing weight when we HAVE the band. Well, not YOU, as you seemed to have done okay with just the band. I have not. :( Today I worked out (and I fought with myself all the way to the basement), and it was the first real workout I've had in probably six months. Can you say IDIOT? :(

  2. ha not so much Bethy ! GOOD for you for working out ! I have so much going on in the next few weeks ( I know excuses ) I am hoping to getting off my ass soon !
