I have had medical problems all of my life, and as a result I have put on pounds after pounds. Just this past weekend I have gained 2 and a half pounds. Im scared of who may become due to the what seems like an uncontrollable addiction to food. Last week my BMI was 38.88 and today it is 39.04. If i gain even just 3 more pounds, my BMI will be 40; that scares me. Ive tried alot of different methods to help me lose weight and none of those have been effective or long-term. I am ready for a change with long lasting results. Ive done alot of research and viewed several different methods of weight loss results, and I believe that the Lap-Band is the best solution for me. Right now I weigh 213 standing at 5'2. Within the last month and a half I have gained 10 pounds and counting. I am afraid that if I do not do something soon that I will reach a point of no return. I have tried dieting, eating healthy,portion control, exercising, staving, and detoxing. And I have not lost one pound. So its time to buckle down and start making some life changing decisions. I havent found a surgeon yet but I plan to start looking this week since Ive finalized my decision. I do have the support from my family and that makes it easier. I will keep you all posted! If yall have any advice on a specific surgeon or willing to share your story please feel free to contact me!! Thanks!!
