I am 4'11" tall and weighed 182 pounds. There is not a diet out there I did try and fail at. Medical intervention for a surgical "tool" to aid in my success is where I am headed. I Had a GI surgical history of erosive gastritis. Dr. Gersin did an EGD and found the erosions had developed pylops and as such, I COULD NOT be gastric bypass patient (the procedure I wanted). We decided on the LapBand and my journey began8/20/12
