Ugh... I can not shake the weight off!!! Every month I try so very hard to weigh less than I did at my last doctor's appointment, but so far it has only been 1 lb at a time. I can't seem to get past this 10 lb mark. I track what I eat, am well within the range my doctor put me in, I exercise 5 or 6 days a week, and drink my water. I know what to do, and in the past, I have been able to loose 15 lbs no problem, but now I am fighting with 1 lb at a time. And you know, when you don't see results, that's when you get discouraged, and quit putting effort into doing the things you know you should do.. well.. at least that's what I do. I guess this whole vamp is really putting into reality that even with the Lap Band, these stalls will happen. Am I going to put something foreign in my body, just to keep struggling like I do pre-band? These are the fears I have.
I'm still ready for the changes that need to take place, and I am ready to work for it.. Heck.. I have been ready 3 years ago when I started researching Lap Band. I have been ready since my first consultation, and have been trying oh so hard during this waiting period. There is no sense in waiting till the surgery to try and better my health. My BMI will still be in the approved range even if I lose some weight. But, no luck in moving this weight.
Bandsters - What makes having the Lap Band different when you can't budge the scale?
