Just starting the process....well, actually I've been on the road for years and didn't know it.  Monday was a watershed day, as my doctor asked me at my monthly appointmentwhat I knew about lap band.  She told me to go to the information the following night, and my appointment with the coordinator was the moring after the session....so in less than 48 hours after my doc suggests that it is time to consider a surgical option, I'm off....Its strange, as while "fast", the ground work has all been laid.  I'm a multiple diet, long term exercise failure.  Meds?  Been there, done that....Spent the evening pulling my documents together and trying to wrap my head around the notion that this could all be less than 8 weeks off.  I'm nervous, but excited.  I truly believe this is the final option for me.
