I have so much to be thankful for, bandwise. No major complications, good weight loss and reasonable restriction.
Yes I whine and complain a bit, and yes I could make better choices and lose another 15 pounds. But on the whole life is good and I'm thankful for my band.
I really feel for people who've had to lose their bands - Jen and Sally - and it makes me grateful that I've not had these horrible complications.
I've been banded for four years. Another year, and I will become a statistical anomaly- someone who lost significant amounts of weight and kept it off for five years.
Reading all these other blogs, I realise this is probably the most boring (esp visually) blog in the blogsphere. But I haven't a clue how to jazz up my layout.
