Lap Band Blogger Hits the “Sweet Spot”

Posted by Lori on August 2, 2009

I was looking around the Lap Band blogs tonight and found a new blog with a edifying new post. Meet Sarah of Losing Weight, Gaining Tons. She had a very good 6 weeks with her Lap Band:

Is this the sweet spot???

So I’m not sure what’s been happening lately, but I have a lot more restriction than I did 3 weeks ago without a fill.  It is perfect.  I can only eat about 1/2 a cup, maybe 3/4 if it is mushier food.  Sometimes a whole lot less if it is meat… I’m not hungry at all, and I’m down almost 4 pounds this week…  I went to the doc on Friday and she said that in the last 6 weeks since I’ve been there, I’ve lost 15.5… I’ll take it!  And then she said – “well, I think we’ve found your sweet spot”!  I hope so!  I’ve really been enjoying myself this week… not in a bad way mind you.  But just KNOWING that I can’t eat anymore has finally clicked in my head if that makes sense.  The physical fullness definitely helps to keep me in line.  And, no PBing or getting stuck either which is great.  7cc’s in a 10cc band.  Go 7 cc’s!

It’s a good blog. She’s a smart  cookie that writes well. I’m amazed at the quality of the Lap Band blogs that we’re seeing now. For a long time, with only a handful of exceptions, most of the blogs were fairly casual without a lot of thought put into the writing or the substance of the writing. That’s definitely changed.

I know that my blog has been accused of being a mindless cheerleader for weight loss surgery, but considering how obesity impacts life, and how difficult it is to permanently lose weight without weight loss surgery, I think there is a moral significance to the procedures. And when I consider the fact that families will have loved ones longer because of the surgery, I’m proud of what I do here.

Anyway, read the blogs. It’ll help you on your journey. Oh, and Sarah has a “before and after” series of pics on her front page, though she has only completed a part of her journey. Still, I know a lot of you love the pics. Enjoy.
