So here I am on this forum, I'm new to the idea of being "banded" (yup, I've picked up some lingo!!!) I, of course have friends who have had it done and I praise the two of them who have done the right thing and done it properly. They both look fantastic and I wish it was me!
Today I want to tell my mum that I'm thinking of getting a lap band. I don't know what to say to her or how to convince her that I need this more than I need air to breathe.
I don't know how she will react and it scares me. She also has a BIG mouth and I know she will HAVE to tell someone!! I, on the other hand don't want anyone to know, even my big sister who will be extremely upset with me when she finds out I didn't want to tell her. But she's got this thing about me losing weight by some miracle she calls "eating everything in moderation" (Hahaha, she jests! I'm sure!) I can't do that. I never have been able to do that. I remember being a little kid and thinking about food all the time. I'm at a loss as to how this happens to people but I have been this way for my whole life!
Anyway, today is the day, hopefully I don't chicken out.
Mum, I'm getting lap banded....
There, easy enough to type! Now to make it come out of my mouth infront of her.
