- HEALTH TRACKER
Jean I am totally a comfort eater too. It used to be cigarettes that calmed me, then I quit smoking. Now it is food and I am becoming more and more aware of that.
I am scared that I will not lose any weight if I have the band...that I will go through it all and have no success. I am so committed to making it work. I am afraid that my intent may not be enough though and that my body might not do it. I did a doctor monitored weight loss program for a year and did not lose anything. (well 7 pounds but that was from a liquid only diet for 2 weeks and the weight came right back as soon as I started eating again). What if that happens again???
The doc I saw was an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in spinal surgery. Also, I will not be having a gastric bypass, but possibly the Realize band.
Thanks for your comment though! I didn't know how long the surgery took or what the recovery was like.
