Just made the decison

Jun 05, 2010

Just made the decision to do the lap band and I have approval from my insurance company that the procedure is covered, however I am not so sure why ( on alot of things ) I have to do so much paperwork?  A psychogical exam? I believe I have all the necessary approvals, even from my main PCP. Why such a long road to surgery?? More whining later.

I am inspired, however,  by the many, many postings I have seen so far.  Both positive and negative, but mostly positive.  Everyone has given me insight to many things that I wondered what would happen.  Even fears of mine are a bit abated through these writings.

My main fear..........yes, Not being able to eat, and excepting that as a life change FOR GOOD.  These days before my upcoming surgery are filled with, " well, it looks like I am not going to be able to eat that either" as I go from meal to meal.

Home do you overcome that??  Simple mind over matter or is it as I have read, You just don't feel like eating at all, or as much.  Does this really change your brain's control of your eating?? 

I am anxious to do this and with some reservation, but I have started the paperwork, and this blog with hopes of not only helping myself, but maybe helping some else make the decision too.
