I had lapband surgery on March 23rd, 2010... I was actiively preparing for the surgery since november of 2009. I was on Optifast 800 liquid diet for the last 2 weeks before surgery.It helps to lower the chance for complications by shrinking my liver amd stomach, lowering my blood sugars, blood pressure, cholesterol... and started me off right on my weight loss journey since I lost 15 pounds in 12 days. I have been overweight 70% of my life and now as the pounds pack on so do the health issues... I love to travel and have a husband who I'm very much in love with after 18 years together so I have alot to live for.... I am taking control of my health and my life. I have lost weight on diets before but keeping it off has been impossible and I hit plateaus and lose will power. I love to laugh and enjoy my life... I am very blessed so I want to be able to give more back and in my current condition it's not possible.
