- The Lap-Band, as the device is called, squeezes the stomach into a bottom-heavy hourglass shape with an upper pouch about the size of a walnut. Filling the pouch stimulates nerves that create a sensation of fullness. The small opening to the lower stomach slows digestion to delay the onset of hunger pangs.
BTW, I didn't do a BYOC last Friday because I didn't want anyone to know that I have never watched Sex and the City or seen any of the movies. I had no idea which character I most resembled so if any of you want to suggest a character, I'd be happy to act just like her. I will tell you that my favourite flower is the tulip. I don't think I have any fears about my weight loss, except maybe I will die before I lose my weight. That would suck not being able to enjoy my skinny body!
Some of you are enjoying a lovely day off today. Wish I was there. But some of us have to work. So enjoy whatever it is you are doing today.
