My Lapband is on my stomach not my mind.
Saturday, September 15, 2012
Since having the lapband, I know to only use it as a tool. But the mind doesn't have one. So I had to change my mind to remember to follow the lapband rules.
Since I am at my "sweet spot" with the tool. I have had to learn to be there in my thoughts.
It is no different than knowing that my checkbook has just a certain amount of money in it. And that I can not spend more than I have. So with the lapband tool, I have to remember that my pouch (where the lapband is) has just so much room. If I forget that I might get sick and stuck. Getting sick and stuck is painful and is not a smart thing to do. So I have to measure my food before I even put it on my plate.
