I had my lapband surgery on Monday, February 15th, 2010.  I had to be at the hospital at 6am.  When the clock was nearning 10am I started to panic and I started wondering if I was doing the right thing and if I should have the surgery or not (Okay, I was really freaking out).  Around 10:15am they brought me up to surgery and the last thing I remember of my old life is looking at the clock in the operating room and seeing 10:45am then the doctor put the Anesthesia into my IV and I woke up to my new life a  little while there after.  I wanted to have weight loss surgery when I was 22 and it finally happened for me 9 year later.  I guess better late then never!  I feel blessed to have had my surgery and I am going to take it very seriously.  I want to succeed, I need to succeed.
