The Reset Button for Weight Loss?

On that rare occasion when my computer completely freezes up, I usually want to throw it out the window.

Or take it out into a field and smash it to bits with a baseball bat.

That would be fun.

But I don't.

Of course.

Instead I use that all important combo of keys: "Ctrl +Alt + Delete"
There's something kinda magical about those keys.

It's like a reset.

A do over.

An opportunity to start over.

That's how I view what the Lap-Band has been for me and my weight loss.

My band has been my one chance to push the reset button for my health and weight.

To start fresh.

The chance to begin a weight loss plan that I could ultimately stick to.

For life.

My only regret?

That I didn't get my Lap-Band earlier.


  1. I say that all the time to anyone who asks, I wish I had done this years ago!

  2. Im coming to the same realization... Wow life is short I stressed and struggled for 12 years from 28 to 40

  3. My one regret other than waiting of course...is that I didn't tell people from the start. If I had a do over, I would tell everyone I was banded.

  4. I totally agree with this post! I struggled with the decision to get the band for 1 1/2 years and decided just to go for it! Turns out it was the best decision I have ever made. And I would do it again. When someone asks I don't hide it. I am proud that I have chosen me this time!

  5. My big do over is scheduled for April 18!

  6. I'm glad its working for you! Life would be so much easier if we could just do a reset wouldnt it? Or would it?
