why i chose to have lap band surgery

i was 336 pounds and wearing a snug size 30 and was as wide as i am tall

my insurance does not approve sleeves and i was (too scared to have bypass).

so i opted with the lap band…my dr even rolled his eyes at me and gave me a yeah, you will fail look. someone supersized like me had to make a decision to get well or lie to myself and the doctor and say yes i will do whatever it takes…that decision was mine to make…any WLS will only do so much

2 1/2 years later

i have done hospital seminars

been filmed 2 times for tv commercials

been in magazines

have a national blog w/awards

not bragging but i came from someone who couldnt wipe her ass

to where i am today…

whatever WLS you have, use it as the dr advises for best results

do the best you can, no excuses, no BS drama…and make yourself well.

each day that passes is one we do not get back.

we wasted enough…now time to get living..

    I have worked with a few lap band patients. There is a lot of struggle that others do not know. Between nauseau, excess fat that you have to train, build muscle and then doctors staple together loose skin and do plastic surgery. After all of that you are good to go but I know it is quite a struggle and anybody who does it and right should be congratulated. I congratulate you.
