    Gastric or LapBand?

    The reason will be different for ea of us. But as for myself I wanted a tool to help me in my new lifestyle forever ( in other words if something happens later pregnacy illness etc and i need help to get back on track i see dr for an adjustment)... also bc the band was the least envasive of the options. . I was banded april 3 of this yr... weight was 273 I am now 175.1... no doubt in my mind I will hit my goal weight. W that said I do my part...don't rely on the band to work magic... I excerise every day of the wk..and twice a wk I get 2 daily work outs in and I monitor everything I put in my mouth. I own my bad days as well as my good one. Good luck in yr journey!

    C25K

    Completely agree its a wonderful program. I finished it in aug now run 4 days a wk ...sunday is my long run day this past sunday I ran 7 miles... crazy huh:-) love my running
  8. I told my husband of course..mom sister and my daughter....all of who can be trusted not to spread it... at work I told my boss (male) I was having surgery needed a few days off..he asked what kind and I looked him straight in the eye and said u really have to know that. ..surgury was 4 mnths ago and he still thinks I had some sort of "lady" surgery. ..he was terrified by my response and just said no no I don't neeed to know..lol that still makes me laugh... my co workers see me dress for the gym everyday at 5 so none have been to noisey about "exactly" what I've done. .. I did get a bad case of vertigo a couple mnths ago and my regional mgr said I was loosing weight to fast that's why I was sick.. I told him that wasn't it that I am under dr supervision for my wl...he was ok w that and didn't ask anything further (he was honestly just worried since he doesn't see me very often so he sees huge changes everytime he does see me) The few times any friends have asked I tell them drastic lifestyle change hi protein low carb and 7days a wk workout
