Recommended Posts

:thumbup:My story is like this I have always been over weight and tried every diet and then some took every pill they said was magic (bull) and would lose the Water weight and gain it right back, then I said I need to go to the meetings on the different surgery's and oh I did and was gonna have the gastric bypass and chickened out two times then I talked to a woman that I see at Bob Evans and she said her Daughter had gastric bypass and cant stop losing weight, and alot more that scared me, so I said what about Lap Band she said if I wanted to do one go with that one so third time going through the meetings I had decided to go through with it and thank God I did , I started out at 276 and now at 201 couldnt be happier I tell everyone, they all say I need to be in commercials because I could talk someone into having Lap Band that dont even need it just because I am so happy and proud of my self I cant begin to tell you how I feel it would take to many words other than I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!:tongue2:

I went today to get blood drawn because my b-12 is low and the guy that is there to get my blood kept looking at me and finally pulled me aside and said I hope you dont mind but you have lost alot of weight I had to look at your name because I said to myself is that the same girl then I told him THANK YOU for noticeing I have and I had lasp band is how. It makes me want it even more to get to wonderland and stay there, when someone you have not seen for a while and they notice it is great. Good Luck, Teena
