So I am not sure how I feel about Carnie Wilson getting the lap band after she had gastric bypass. In a way I am kind of wondering why she thinks she can get this to work? What has changed in her to make her think this will work when gastric did not? I totally think she left her band hanging and it was rude for her to not let them know but then again I was thinking why can't she go on tour a month after she gets her band? Band surgery is not that hard to where she would be down for a month....I mean really I was back at work after a week. She should be fine to tour after 4 weeks.
While I am bitching I noticed that a few ladies at my Weight Loss support group don't really eat food. They stick to liquids(protein shakes and bars) and rarely add "real" food in. I thought the goal was to eat "real" food and to try to eliminate shakes and bars and use them only as necessary? I can see some being tight in the am and having a shake then but why not eat real food for lunch and dinner? They seem to keep getting fills when they have problems eating food. Its confusing to me and I have a hard time feeling any sympathy to a bander who is tight but not losing and not really eating food decides to get another fill....REALLY maybe you need to evaluate what you are eating and exercising before automatically thinking a fill is the answer.
