Scared but moving forward

I have struggled with weight my whole life and have finally reached a point (age) where I admit I can't do it on my own. Not for lack of trying. I know this surgery won't remove my stress, change my genetics, or make me suddenly skinny. Heart attacks at a very early age run in my family. I hope that taking off 50 lbs will give me a chance to live a more active, healthy life so I can live longer to be there for my daughter. I hope that is not tmi.

Great to see activity in our group. I've been poor at posting my thoughts.
Must be the winter doldrums. I ordered some senior daily chewable vitamins. That should help. I had my band put in at Abbott NW in Minneapolis in 2006
I lost 30+ before the operation and 67 after.....then was in holding pattern. I felt good and went on a cruise, etc. I had several fills & etc. Last spring we found cancer in left breast, so they removed the saline from my band before my cancer surgery. This year I've had pneumonia, broken hand besides the cancer surgery, & now the new flu since the holidays. Quite a year for an 82 year old! I've never really blown what I learned from my nutrition classes of 2006. I do not buy sugar or most products that contain sugar and fructose products. I find they make me hungry a short time later. I do not buy or consume soft drinks. My one downfall is coffee and iced non-cal skim milk-coffee lattes.

I would like to have an elderly bander to blog with.
(Not discriminating...any age would be appreciated!)
