Well after 25 years of yo yo dieting I decided just this week to go with Lapband Surgery.  I knew I would never qualify for Insurance coverage due to the lower BMI.I was able to get financing for it and I am very excited about it.  I am 45 years old and have 3 kids.  I have been on every diet out there and of course they work for a little while and then I would always gain it back plus more.  I was always thin until I got married and had kids ( so I am blaming them.  LOL)  Gained alot with every pregnancy and could never get it off.  Last year I was diagnosed with lower disc issues in my back and hip joint pain.  I am really hoping with the surgery that this will alleviate some of this.  I just want to feel more energetic and have a better self esteem.
