About Me

  • Gender
I am 55 years old and my starting weight is 257. I have finally finished everything for lapband just waiting for approval from my insurance.I never had a weight problem until I reached my 40's. And then I quit smoking and took up another vice , food. Now I gain weight by just looking at it, and I cannt get it off, so my only hope is to get help with lapband. I need to get this weight off to gain control of my life again. With the weight I have started having other troubles, asthma,stomache troulbes (GERD), Arthritis,no energy, high blood preasure. My children al;l think I am to old for this type of surgery, But I am hoping to get this weight off and live a longer life, and more healthy, Do you think I am just dreaming of this life or is it really possible?
