Being fairly athletic for years it was pretty hard losing weight after having my children later in life.  I decided to better myself and ensure longevity in my life for myself and family.  After enduring 7 months of grueling kickboxing classes, etc I decided that I needed to look into having the LapBand procedure.  I have been through the diet counseling and had all my tests done.  Since I had issues with my gallbladder I had it  removed to ensure no issue would arise such as corrosion granted if I had the gallbladder removed after the band was in place.  I'm now waiting for my Insurance to approve me for the band.  This is so amazing and reading everyones journey while on lunch break is so inspiring so I said it was time for me to get into the grove.   I'm happy to be here!
