I've experienced the ups and downs of every fad diet out on the market with no success.  I am an LPN and am currently in college and will graduate with in May and hope to pass boards and be an RN soon after.  I recently had a horrifying experience with a herniated L4 disk which I thought would put me out of nursing school, but thank god didn't.  My doctor told me that if I wanted to be an RN that I would have to make the necessary lifestyle changes to lose a lot of weight and keep it off to take pressure off my joints, not only in my back, but my knees as well.  I decided then and there that I would have lap band surgery as soon as I could find an affordable doctor since I am in college and unemployed.  I found my answer through beliteweight and will be banded in Juarez, Mexico by Dr. Jose Rodriguez.  I'm excited and hope that this will save not only my career, but my life in the long run.
