My weight has been a yoyo my entire life. I have had type 1 diabetes forever, and since having children, I am now also insulin resistant. The amounts of insulin I need to take is making it extremely difficult to shed any weight. My pcp recommended bariatric surgery and after going back and forth between getting a band and having gastric bypass, I strongly feel that the band is the right choice for me.

I look forward to sharing this journey with you!
