9 days with a COMPLETELY empty lapband will really tell a girl what that lapband has been doing for her. Loose or not, there was SOME restriction there, because once it was completely empty, it was like I'd entered a whole new world. A world of bread and pasta and eating and eating and eating.
Holy shit. Revision needed or not, this band is doing SOMETHING for me. I guess taking a vacation from my lapband was a good reminder that this band is just a tool. It didn't change me. If I don't use it to it's full potential, I can go right back to where I was 22 months ago.
I often convince myself I'm not that same fat girl anymore.
I'm the same girl. I have the same problems with food. I just have a tool to help.
I don't want this band anymore, I want revision. If I don't get the revision though, I will be happy that I have this, because it really has changed my life.
