Thank you, Lap Band

Dear Lapband,
Because of you, I could only eat 3/4 of a BBQ sandwich and a few bites of two unhealthy side-dishes before I was full. I am eternally grateful to your ability to keep me from eating all that and STILL wishing for another sandwich. Before I met you, LapBand, I could have eaten twice my meal's size in a blink of an eye. You keep me in check LapBand. You rock.

I'm kinda surprised you let me eat the bread, but you are quirky like that - sometimes you are in the mood for bread and sometimes not.

You and I have a special relationship - sometimes you let me eat fun stuff like I did before, but just in smaller amounts. You've introduced me to the kind of relationship I always wanted to have with food and I'm so happy that we met. You've made me more like a normal person instead of the human garbage disposal I was before. If you ever want to be more strict, I would certainly let you because I know now that I can survive on less. You even help me plan ahead - like making sure I ate a smaller breakfast because I knew I was going to have this special lunch today. You're the best personal assistant a gal could ever have.
