I got a lapband, just last week,
and the smallest change is just so sweet,
there’s no constant thoughts of “what is edible”,
and I find that freedom so incredible.
I can look at food in all its wonder,
whilst no longer feeling endless hunger,
I can pause and admire it’s pleasing design
without planning how to devour it, in my mind.
The freedom from the endless nag,
is something I have never had,
and the icing on the cake, I’d say,
is I’ve lost 6 kilos since that day.
