My calendar reminded me that today marks 300 days since I had my Lapband surgery. As I have said throughout this journey, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only the weight loss, but also the healthy living -- better eating habits, better exercise decisions -- to name a few.
i recently read that New York Jets coach Rex Ryan had the LB done a few years ago and he just crossed the 100 pound loss mark. FANTASTIC! He was a good 80 pounds heavier than I was, so as much as I needed it, he needed it even more so. And I've read he's taken up running, etc....just like me! The big difference is he is now a paid spokesperson for Lapband -- which means he makes some good money pitching his changes -- while I am just a volunteer trying to spread the word!
In any case, it has been 300 days of many changes, all for the good. Not for everybody, but certainly an option when all of the other methods (and sadly scams!) of weight loss aren't working.
