I have been considering wls for a few years now. I was scheduled a year ago, but I listened to my family and thought I could do it on my own.... I have been overweight for all of my life and I am just tired of failing at trying to lose weight. I deceided on the Lap Band for financial reasons. I could not afford the sleeve or gastric so the band it was. My insurance does not cover weight loss surgery, so I will be paying for the surgery. I feel I am worth it, and most importantly my health is worth it. Wish me luck on my journey.
