I am 22 years old, I have had weight problem all my life and tried many diets of my own. Though some have worked, but at the end I ended up gaining more then I lost. I chose the Lap Band because of the intake control it will have. I started my journey in January and and contacted my insurance they told me I needed a supervised diet for 7 months. So my hopes were in a way crushed. I came home that day and realized that this was Gods way of giving me time to get my body ready for this surgery. Thats what I did I started out in January at 280 pounds, with my doctor we went over some eating habits and totally changed my ways of eating. At first it was hard Because I wanted to give up it was way to hard, but i pushed and pushed at my last weigh in with him i weigh 230 which was amazing. By that time i have changed my eating habits, I gave up all meats expt fish and shrimps, I don't eat fried foods and have developed a work out plan that best suits me. I am scheduled for surgery August 20 2010 and I am more then excited to start my new life..
