Hi - I am new to the forum and look forward to getting a lot of advice and support from other users.  I just had my first doctor's visit, and my insurance company (Aetna) requires a 3 month weight loss program, so my surgery date hasn't been determined yet.  I have struggled with my weight my whole life, but it has become a health risk in the past 10 years.  I have HBP and type 2 diabetes.  You wouldn't believe all the meds I take each day to manage these conditions.  I have a 3.5 year old son and I look forward to the day when I can play with him and get down on the ground with him without feeling over-exerted.  I also don't want him to ever be made fun of because his mommy is fat.  I have a lot to live for and I need to get my health under control in order to successfully live a happy, productive life.  I see the lap band surgery as a way to regain some control over my health and I know it is the answer for me.
