    That is wonderful you are starting the best journey to help you with your weight. I love the band. I am off all meds except for the required (by my doctor) vitamins and minerals. I don't snore any more either.
    Good luck.

    Hello everyone. I actually joined in October 2011 because I was considering the lap band then, but I didn't feel ready to take that first step then and wanted to try to lose the weight any other way than surgery. Well, nearly two years later, and I am back because I have come to the realization that I need some help. Here is a little information about me. I am 39 years old and am 5' 2" and currently weigh 225 pounds. My BMI is 41.5. I'm scheduled to go to the seminar on the 21st of September in Fayetteville, GA. I have Tricare Prime and I am hoping I can get banded by the end of the year. I have already been diagnosed with Obstructive sleep Apnea, and use the CPAP (not successfully either), I have Asthma and medication has not be effective in controlling it. I also have severe joint pain. This year alone, I've tried weight watchers (only lost about 10 pounds in 8 months), I go to Zumba, I walk, I stopped drinking soda for a long period of time, and none of it really worked. I am ready now because I need the help because nothing else is working for me. I am fotunate because my husband is very supportive and so are my kids. I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I hope my insurance will approve it and I can start my journey soon.
    I would love to meet new friends on this journey and hear from anyone that can give me advice, support, and just a shoulder to lean on when I need it. If anyone is in the Peachtree City/Newnan/Fayettevill Georgia area, let me know.
