What a journey - I'm so excited

For two years now I've been contimplating doing some form of gastro. surgery.... I have exercised and ate right for years...yet my weight never seemed to budge...now with hypertension and sleep apnea I had enough...I didn't want my kids to watch me work out and see no results. I have a good heart - thank the Lord, but the outside is still heavy and I still have meds to take. So enough was enough.

 

After knowing a few people who had the gastro bipass and seeing what they went through, I had enough confidence to ask for the lapband myself. I know it's different but I felt it was the best option for me. I timmedly asked a doctor about it and he laughed me off. It took me months to go back in and ask again - this time my primary doctor. Without any fuss he made the referrals. Now began the journey of what seemed like long waiting for paperwork to be shuffled about.
