I have Hypnotic Gastric Band,visualization,& exercise. Its my golden opportunity to be slender & fit. I tend to be full blown skeptic. Or am I afraid of becoming slim & fit? Slim & trim is natural for me. Faulty programing & conforming to that programing made me fat & unhealthy. Food & eating became a reward,a comfort,& something to do when I was bored. Food & eating became my best friend & soul mate,my daily companion. Its like drugs,alcohol,& cigarettes. Its a quick fix,an escape.
