Things I Dont Want to Know

After reading alot of posts on lapbandtalk.com I have come away with not wanting to know a few things.
The main thing is that I do not want to learn how to cheat the band. I do not understand wanting to cheat the band. I am self pay and that would be like burning the hard earned money to pay for it.

I have skipped over posts relating to this subject.

Something I don't want to ever experience again is a stuck feeling. I haven't had a fill and casually was chewing seedless grapes when I swallowed one WHOLE. It was almost immediate discomfort then serious pain. I freaked. I prayed. I tried to belch, burp, anything. I pounded on my chest bent over and tried to puke it up. Well it finally went somewhere, not up. Scared the living crud out of me.

I have to watch this. Also chewing gum. I have in the past swallowed. Bad idea with the band.

Some more randomness on lap band stuff:
Trying to find ways to get high protein that is not animal based, this list shows all sources of protein.

I agree! Why get the band if you want to cheat? Silly silly bandsters...

I honestly don't read much at lapbandtalk. I think that some of the people (most of the people I end up reading actually) are people that don't have a lot of ambition to truly make their band work. They seem to have been looking for the magic bullet to get their weight off rather than using the band as a tool to help them moderate their intake. I agree with you - there is no point at all in getting the band if you're going to figure out ways to cheat it.

Being stuck sounds painful. I have yet to experience being stuck or PB'ing. Chew, chew, chew! :)
