A Letter To My Brain

Dear Brain,

Are you slow on the uptake?  Did you not get the memo? Are you a couple of fries short of a Happy Meal?  Is the hamster dead, yet the wheel is still spinning?

Can you please, please, please update your mental image of how I look now? 

It's time to catch up and realize that I now look like this:


You do know that I don't look like this anymore, but seriously...I think you are still about 50 lbs behind:

So, Brain, get yourself with the program...time to update!

Your Friend,
Lap Band Gal

  2. In total agreement with Ms. M! I've thought a lot about you saying your confidence was MIA. In my mind, it took exceptional confidence to accept the invitation in San Francisco, jump on a plane and go there AND give a presentation. I would love to have confidence like that. You are really doing so well. :)

  3. I hope it just takes time. As Caron said above, you are already at least outwardly making these mental changes. It really took a lot of gumption to be a patient representative in San Fran! You'll get there dear. I know you will.

  5. Being a few fries short of a happy meal is not a bad thing. You represent all of bandsters so well.

  6. I keep hoping it will happen. I think there are good days and bad ones with the old brain.

    Would we have been as big as we were before if we were a good judge? I kind of think not.

    xxxooo
