I have been battling my weight for the last twenty five years with life membership of Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and Sunshine slimmers.My family history includes Type II diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol - I have them all!
The last five years it has been increasingly difficult to lose weight and very easy to put it on. Unless I am actively dieting my weight goes up. dieting results in weight plateau not loss.I see the lap banding as a life saver - I have two beautiful grandchildren, I want to see them grow up. So I need to get my health/weight issues sorted. The two are intricately linked and have cause and effect on each other continually.My family and partner are very supportive and I am excited about the prospect of getting my health/weight issue sorted.My operation occured two days ago and it has all gone really well. Like it was meant to be.
