That empty closet must contain a methaphor for other parts of life that now have more space. For what.. ?
I've got one and half more weeks to lose one and half more pounds to leave the obese BMI category.

Having a lap band that need filling is much like driving a car with a very loose parking brake: you can drive almost normally with just a little bit of annoying drag.
I tested the theory that white, doughy bread is problematic for a banded pouch. Not this one. The medium-sized, house-made roll from Kens Market went down smoothly. Problem was it was a GD cinnamon roll!
That was at 3:30. It's. 6:30 now and I'm still not hungry. If that changes later tonight, I'll have a bit of cottage cheese.
Enough experimenting for today. And enough driving with the parking brake on.
