I'm 26 years old and lucky to say that I am happily married to the love of my life.  He loves me for who I am which is a wonderful thing to know.  I've been battling with weight most of my life and have been obese for pretty much my entire adult life.  Too be honest I'm wasn't 100% sure about going through with the Lap Band.  I have some concerns about complications and rigid diet requirements post-op.  I went to the seminar January 12, 2010. I researched the procedure and began to be active on the boards  At first I didn't share with anyone else besides my husband but as I got closer to the surgery day I began to share with my friends and family.  I still have not shared with coworkers.  I want to live an active lifestyle but it's difficult physically and mentally.  And most importantly I want to start a family and I'm afraid to being the weight and sze I am.  My husband doesn't understand but is trying to support me.
