What Advice Would You Give?
We have a new soon to be banded blogger out there folks. Please stop by and say hello to Cheri over at Lap Band Fluxion.
Yeah, I had to google the word "fluxion." But then I saw that Cheri's first blog post had the definition for fluxion as: the action of flowing or changing.
Cheri hopes to get a band in November or December. She emailed me a few days ago about her concerns about being a failure with the band.
Here's an excerpt from Cheri's email (she gave me permission to put it here on the blog):
I have so much to lose and I have failed over and over and over. I am scared I will fail at this too. I ask myself "is it worth it?" and the answer is yes but I answer rather weakly. I really do not like to exercise and have a VERY limited budget. My hubby is disabled and we live on a very fixed income and spending this much money, stretches us very thin. The thought of failing again is overwhelming. I know it is worth it to be healthy and one of the reasons I am doing this is because hubby is not healthy and one of us needs to be. I think I just need encouragement that I AM doing the right thing...........thanks so much for listening.
Did you have similar thoughts like hers when you were considering getting a band?
Please post your comments below. Cheri will be reading!
