A few housekeeping items:
- I do not actually have a 'Lap Band'. I have a 'Realize Band'. 'Lap Band' and 'Realize Band' are brand names, like 'Kleenex' and 'Puffs'. I will often use the term 'lap band' since it is much more recognized by the general public, and it is much easier to type.
- This blog is NOT about how the cheat or work around the band. It is meant to be a chronicle of my efforts to indulge my 'foodie' lifestyle while working within the restrictions of my band (and therefore losing weight). I also hope to provide a guide for how you can do this, too. Because everyone wants to be a foodie, right?
