I will forever regard my decision to have a stomach banding operation as one of the most brilliant moves I’ve ever made in my life! I know there are people who regard stomach banding as a ‘cop out’, the easy way out, but guess what? Nothing could be further from the truth! It is certainly NOT a way out. It works because it’s a wonderful opportunity to retrain yourself to portion control eating; which in turn helps you regain your health so you improve and maintain an enjoyable quality of life. Once and for all you take responsibility for your eating. You gain a life!
Consider this analogy – assume you’re scaling a particularly treacherous mountain face and having trouble maintaining your grip. This is not the first, second or even the third time you’ve attempted and failed. Someone comes along and offers you a helping hand in the form of evaluation of your technique, redirection of your training and support with a team of experts which, with a lot of self-help on your part would guarantee you success; would you turn your back them and dismiss it all as trifling?
If like me, you are petrified of developing secondary, chronic illnesses as a consequence of having type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, joint pains etc you would jump at such a chance, roll up your sleeves for the hard yakka ahead and brace yourself for a success story. And that is exactly what I did. Now 5 years down the track and 80kgs lighter, I’m clear of all the chronic ailments. I’m fit and healthy. I feel and look much younger and I’m enjoying life to the max. The journey continues and will do so for the rest of my life. “A lutta Continua” - the struggle goes on but at least now, I’m enjoying the journey even when I periodically fall off the wagon, I never give up. The alternatives don’t bear thinking about so always forwards and onwards …. What took me so long?
