A new beginning

Monday, May 20, 2013

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.

    Welcome home! I have a few friends who have had the lap band surgery and they say it works really well as long as you follow the program. You can do this! I'm happy for you! HUGS!
