[b][font='comic sans ms'][size=4][color=#800080]After many years of going through the process to get either the band or the bypass, I have finally decided on the bypass. I thought I wanted the sleeve until I saw my surgeron. He explained everything to me and now, I'm getting the bypass![/color][/size][/font][/b]

[b][font='comic sans ms'][size=4][color=#800080]My surgeron is wonderful. He has years and years of experience. He's kind, knowledgeable and his staff is amazing! [/color][/size][/font][/b]

[b][font='comic sans ms'][size=4][color=#800080]I'm kind of the typical story here. Lost, gained, lost, gained, tried every diet known to man/woman! Every time I thought I could do it all on my own. I lost every time. But I always gained it back.[/color][/size][/font][/b]

[b][font='comic sans ms'][size=4][color=#800080]So, it's time. It's just time. When someone says, "hey, you've done it before, you can do it again", I respond with, "well, no, I HAVEN'T done it before". I have NEVER kept the weight off so this will be the first and last time keeping it off. [/color][/size][/font][/b]

[b][font='comic sans ms'][size=4][color=#800080]I'm very excited about doing this and wish I had done it years ago. But I guess it wasn't supposed to be time. It is now and I couldn't be happier!![/color][/size][/font][/b]

[b][font='comic sans ms'][size=4][color=#800080]So glad to have found this site too. :)[/color][/size][/font][/b]

[b][font='comic sans ms'][size=4][color=#800080]Congrats to all and keep moving forward to all us preops! [/color][/size][/font][/b]
