I've decided to get the LAP-BAND because I'm tired of leading a life thats not healthy. I have always struggled with my weight and today is the day I'm going to make a change. I always thought I could lose the weight on my own, after trying every diet out there I started considering getting surgery. It was hard at first cause I didn't want to take the easy way out as people would call it, but I've learned over the months this isn't the easy way out. Getting the LAP-BAND will allow me to control my eating and the rest is up to me still. I'm very happy with myself for finally doing something to help me and I'm looking forward to the new start of my life!
