[color=#4b0082][font=comic sans ms, cursive]For years I have been overweight. It didn't start in childhood or as an adult. I started putting on weight after the birth of two children. A lot of it was from not being as active as I used to be. I went to a seminar over 10 years ago and was undecided still. A couple of years ago I decided on lapband surgery and started the paperwork and went to a seminar but my doctor moved away so that was the end of that until May when I went to another seminar and started getting my paperwork up to date. I can honestly say that I had doctor's documentation from several doctor's so the process went faster than I expected. I went to see a mental health specialist who gave a glowing report and faxed it right in her office to my doctors office. I was approved within the first week of turning everything in to my amazement! At 270 lbs, I was scheduled for surgery on July 5, 2012 and it's been 3 weeks now and I do not regret my decision. I am still learning as I go and trying to figure out how to update all my information on this site. [/font][/color]
