I am a 20 year old college student. I have recently decided to have lap band surgery, and started the process. I went to the lap band seminar in May 2011, and started working toward my goal of having surgery. It took alot for me to decide to get this surgery. I had spoke with my parents before when i was 18 years old and about 50 llbs lighter, but i was confident that i could do it myself. I was also very nervouse about having surgery, because this will be my first surgery. I am currently 5' 9", 340 lbs. I am so excited to have this surgery and start enjoying life more. I feel like my weight has caused me to miss out on alot of things. I often think before doing things how i will look or what people will think when they see me (at the beach in a swimsuit, for example). I know having this surgery will change things. I am on this site to find other young adults who are having or have had weight loss surgery. I have seen alot of stories of adults, but would like to learn more from young adults, especially college students. 
Thanks I hope I help others and others help me!
