I have struggled with my weight most of my life. I am married and have a 17 year old son (who turns 18 in a week). Last year I finally got to a point where I was tired of being fat, not to mention that my weight started affecting my health. Last year in 2011 I was no longer pre-diabetic I was diabetic and I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I was finding myself taking pills and feeling like crap. It was finally time to do something. Luckily where I work they had already had me on a disease risk management program, so I had already been seeing a doctor, dietitian, and physical trainer. The doctor suggested I look into the Lap Band. After doing my research I decided to have the RNY and contacted Las Palmas in El Paso. I had my surgery on July 19, 2011. Now I am looking forward to starting a new journey.
