If you have noticed that I haven't been as active here lately; you are not mistaken. I have been taking some time to reflect and think about my weight loss journey and the steps I want to take to continue the process.
If you read my blog from November 15, you know that my husband has been encouraging me to get a lap band. I have never been a big fan of that type of medical intervention. But in all fairness, I decided to do research on it and make an educated decision on it.
I have been reading on the internet, peeking around spark teams devoted to those subjects, and just last week I went to a seminar about lap bands and gastric bypass.
The only thing I can tell you for certain right now is that personally, I could never have the gastric bypass. It's just not for me.
Now, I'm still not sure about the lap band. I think it could be a good tool. It's not an easy solution. I was surprised when listening to the procedure and requirements after, a lot of the principles that are important to the success of this tool are also Becks principles. I didn't see that coming. But it sure made sense.
I guess when it comes down to it; getting the lap band is the equivalent of willpower. You have no choice but to do it right. Your body won't let you do otherwise.
So, I can honestly tell you, I still haven't decided what I'm going to do. I would rather do it on my own, but if I can't, this would be a viable option. I'm in no hurry to decide.....it's a big decision.
So I will continue to focus on Becks principles and I am doing another challenge to lose 12 pounds this month. (Of course the christmas party for my brother in the service ......yesterday.........did NOT help my cause! But it didn't defeat me either.) So I hope to be back to my spunky self soon.
I hope you are having a great day!!!!
