[font=comic sans ms,cursive][size=4][color=#4B0082]My name is Brandy, I am 35 years old and have 3 kids; a boy, 15, and two girls 9 and 4. I have been overweight my whole life but morbidly obese for the past few years. a few years ago I was going to try the lapband but backed out due to finances. After researching, I am very glad that I did because I came to the conclusion that the band was not for me. I didn't want to risk having to have a revision because of band slippage or erosion. So last year, a co-worker of mine had the Gastric Sleeve surgery and has had great success. Since I knew that I didn't want the Bypass either, I chose tho have the VSG. I have since lost 16.5 pounds just by changing my diet and am very excited about having my surgery.[/color][/size][/font]
