Second Thoughts?

I think it's pretty rare to decide to have weight loss surgery and not have second thoughts at SOME point in the process. Recently I've been trying to get a head start by implementing some of the changes that I'll have to make once I get a band. In that process, I've lost almost ten pounds and haven't been particularly hungry. This makes me wonder if maybe if I ˆcanˆ do it on my own after all. I'm not sure exactly why I think this time would be different, but if I can avoid surgery -- one I may have trouble getting insurance to pay for -- that's got to be a good thing.

Of course, in the past when I've lost 10 lb. my body went into "you're going to die; eat something! anything! the fattier the better!" mode. I'm about two pounds away from that now. Let's see how I feel about the whole thing next week...
