  1. After struggling with my weight my entire life, my decision to have the Lap Band surgery was one i will never regret! While some people would not have looked at me and automatically labeled me obese, my body and my BMI definately did. At 28 yrs.old, I weighed 252 pounds and had a BMI of 40! With no children of my own yet, i knew that this time in my life was a perfect time to gain a permanent solution to my weight problem.

    Now don't get me wrong - there are some days that i wish i could rip it out from inside of me - simply because i am a greedy eater! Sometimes i wish i could have a hamburger or maybe a slice of pizza - but then i KNOW that i CANT have it and it is an instant reminder of why i was obese to begin with. The simple truth is - your body doesnt NEED those foods - it just WANTS/CRAVES them. Once they are out of your mind - they are out of your life.

    It has been nine months since my surgery, and at my last appointment i hit my 80 pounds lost mark. With only 10 or 15 pounds to go, I truly know that my surgery was a great decision for me and my well being. Just know that each person handles surgery different as well as its after effects. I guess i just had my mind set on not being the fat old lady who never got out of her rut..... GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!:tongue2:
