After struggling with my weight on and off my entire life and being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in March of 2007 I knew I had to take drastic measures to lose weight before something happened to me. I researched the lapband and gastric bypass but very early on knew that the band was the way to go for me. My Insurance approved my lap band procedure after almost 1 year to date of attending Dr Snyders seminar I will be banded 1/8/2010 and I am excited, nervous and scared all at the same time. My biggest fear is something will happen during the procedure and I won't come to (I know silly huh?) My 2nd fear is what if it doesn't work and I don't lose any weight and my final fear is giving up Diet Dr Pepper LOL I swear I think I am addicted to that stuff but all in all I am excited to get the ball rolling and start losing this weight that I have carried around with me for most of my life.
