I am new to this site and wanted to tell my story. I get banded on Feb 1, 2013 its been a long wait but now reality is hitting me. I have been overweight for 12 years now(once lost over 150 lbs). I am so tired of carrying all this extra weight, and not being able to do the things I did before. When my friends ask me to do something I always have to bow out if it's a hard long activity. I made the decision last December to do something about it. Since my insurance changed and they accepted lap band I thought it was the perfect time to have this done. But I am really nervous right now. I hope to share with others their many struggles and be encouraged by your thoughts. I love technology that we have away of communication that is so important to share our stories. I hope that this works for me and I made the right decision. I am no spring chicken in my 50's but still have a lot of life to share. Here's to the Feb. 2013 bansters! :)
