<p><span><span><font face="Comic Sans MS"><font size="+0"><font style="font-size: 9pt">I was very thin growing up until I left High School. So now after 16 years of struggling, up and down, weight watchers, south beach, low carb, cleanses, 3 hour gym days and the list goes on and on...I have finally decided to get the lap band. I told myself last year that if I could not successfully lose it on my own with diet and excerise that I would get the surgery. I realized that after all these years, I am just tired of the struggle and I need a hand. I realized 40 is around the corner and I need to put an end to this struggle. So my decision is made and my consult appointment too. My husband and I are both going to go through this journey. He started his journey in 2008 and never went through with it. He successfully lost the weight but of course after all that hard work he has gained it back. We both are 100% on board with getting the lapband and he is considering the sleeve. I am eager to get the ball rolling. I already have my last 3 years of weigh-ins at the doctors ready to take with me to the consult next week (10/12/11). I am already visualizing the NEW me! I am a bit nervous but completely focused on getting all my appointments done quickly. They told me with my insurance it could happen as quickly as 10 weeks! I welcome friends going through or that has gone through this journey. Join me and encourage me on the road to the next chapter of my life and yours.</font></font></font></span></span></p>
