I chose lapband after struggeling with my weight most of my life.  I had tried every diet out there and always has some success but never anything lasting.  Deciding to get the lapband took me about a year. In that year I tried to lose more weight but gained instead. Weight loss surgary was brought up to me about 6 years ago by my GYN. I had developed pre hypertension, insulin resistance and infertility. I was also told those would more then likely go away if I lost weight. I tried by myself but failed over and over. 10/15/2010 is my new birthday!! Even as I write this I am lounging with several pillows healing from my surgary. This is the beginning of my new healthy life.
