I joined Sparkpeople years ago and I have started and stopped diets innumerable times since then. Ultimately, I have always regained the weight and more. This cannot continue, not only because I want to be thinner, but also because my health is suffering. My back, knees, and feet hurt; I have high cholesterol; I am pre-diabetic. Realizing that diets are just not working for me, I have made the decision to have weight loss surgery and I strongly believe this is the right course for me. I have done quite a bit of research and I know this is a tool that I will have to work with to achieve my goals, but I am excited to have made the decision. I chose the lap band because it is the least radical and can be reversed if necessary. My surgery date is in late June.
