iv been big my entire life and after years and years of  and yo yo dieting things got really fustrating. the challanges of daily activities were just getting harders and finally after haveing 2 failed medicated insemination at a fertility clinic we decided that maybe the lapband would be a good desision to try and loose the wieght in hope that  would help us concieve.i have unexsplained infertility so my fertility doc cant say 100% that my weight is part of the prob but he said it could be a factor and that being at a healther weight will give me a healhier pregancy and reduce my risk of complications to me and my child.im only 25 but iv always wanted a big family and with the weight im at i wont be able to really be there for my kids.. so after much thought and alot of research me and my family and doctor decided that i should have the lap band. my insurance coverd 80% and pretty much approved me right away.i was banded 3-5-10 and i cant wait to start my new life.. its difficult with the change but its all worth it. and harder. i have very active friends and im always the last one on our walks. i love to hike but i cant get far so i dont bother going because i hate the fact that my freinds have to wait for me.. they said they didnt mind but i dunno. amusment parks i stopped going to in fear i wouldnt be ale to fit in the seats and i am so not even gonna go through the humiliation of sitting in the big girl seat! my back and joint pain started becoming a problem lucky i didnt develope any major heath issues.me and my fiance have been trying to get pregnant for year
