Well a little about me. I have struggled with weight since I was a lil' one.  I have tried all kinds of diets just like so many other people. I would loose but then gain with pretty much all of them. Last year about this time my husband and I (which he is not overweight at all but just VERY supportive) started really dieting and working out...Well I was feeling great...real great...and two weeks into the diet/workout I broke my foot! Talk about a disappointment. Doc told me that I have planter Fasciitis! Ugh...So now when I walk I have a lot of pain. Fortantly that is the ONLY health problem that I have but I know its a matter of time before I get hit with serious health problems. I have a friend that did lapband about a year ago and has had a great outcome so I decided to check out a seminar. My wonderful husband went with me and we did a lot of talking about it. I made my mind up I was going to do it. I have an appointment in about a week to get everything started BUT I am still neverous and scared...I know I have been bugging my friends to death with question. Hopefully all my fears will go away soon!
