    Easy way out???

    i go on sat. for my free consult... the only people that know im getting this done is my sister and my bf... plus all you guys... i dont want my family to know bc they will judge & talk sh*t if they dont see a drastic change... so i will keep it to myself(+2).... I WANT TO GET THIS SO BAD... $$$ is an issue bc i have to pay for it out of pocket & its an expense that i dont need right now but i really want it.... the other issue im having is i have a hiatal hernia & most people have problems with it... so idk lets see what happens sat... thanks for all the comments i really appreciate it

    Easy way out???

    Am i taking the easy way out by getting this done? i know that people that are not banded will say that i can do it on my own but are they right??? i dont think i can do this on my own but when i see others loosing it without the band it makes me think is this the right choice?
  7. OMG Im so worried to get this done.....i have a Hiatal Hernia and worry about complications... this is something to think about bc im self pay

    feeling crappy

    so im not banded but i really want to be. i try to loose weight on my own but once i dont see any change i loose motivation. i dont know what to do to. i feel like crap most days bc of how i look. Im always called the cute girl and that i would be so pretty only if i was skinny. all i want to do is cry today. im having a terrible pain in my back and it might be kidney stone. i dont want to go through my life with medical issues. I want to be healthy but i just cant see myself doing it. i wish i could be on the biggest loser but without all the cameras.
