I have struggled with weight issues since my early 20's.  Life was fast paced and fast food was an easy out!  The pounds slowly kept creeping up.  I have had success with weight loss through Weight Watchers.  I could take the weight off but my problem is keeping it off.  I have been on cholesterol medicine for 3 years now and over the last year my blood pressure had started increasing, I knew it was time to do something so that I am around for my kids ages 11 & 6.  A friend and I have decided to take the lapband journey together which I think will be great support for both of us.  After consulting with the surgeon, dietician, psychologist and coordinator all in one day I was definately overwhelmed but knew I was ready.  I was approved by my insurance very quickly and the surgery was scheduled 3 weeks later!  My life is about to change and I am so ready for this change!
