Well, I suppose you wouldn't call it a party, but a celebration just the same (with liquids, mushies and smaller quantities as the appetizers and meal) :) (what, no emoticons here....if anyone knows how I can insert them, please let me know).
About a month ago, I made the decision to go with an adjustable band. The decision was not easy or quick. I used to be a naysayer. Sorry, but I was. I have a couple of friends with the band and they have had so much trouble for various reasons. I wanted no part of it.
Then one day, I was talking to a co-worker who was banded 2 years ago. She said, Joyce, I was over 300 lbs. I knew what I needed to do, I just needed this TOOL to help me. BAMM!!! No, that is not Emeril in the kitchen. That was the light bulb smacking me in the head. TOOL!!! I never looked at it like that. If used properly, this tool can help me achieve my goals.
Once that hit me, I researched and researched and researched some more. Then I called Southern Surgical in Greenville and got the ball rolling.
