Like many I struggled with my weight since childhood. After trying every diet under the sun I decided I would look into surgery options. In 2008 I had the Gastric Bypass procedure done. Entering that surgery my weight was 311, and within two yrs I got down to 177. By 2011 my weight started creeping up. I got to 215 and stayed there, and with that struggle I also found that I developed sleep apnea. It was 2/1/12 that I decided on the band over bypass procedure and was told by my doc that I was a great candidate. And with that said I had the BOB done on 9/26/12 and can't wait to experience what this journey has in store.
