I have been overweight for 8 years.  I gained 70lbs. with my son and just kept going.  I lost almost all of it after my divorce and kept it off for about 2 years and then i gained it all back and then some.  I was asked to be in a wedding and so i felt I have to get rid of all of the extra weight and I did it by eating right but it didn't last either.  i tried every diet there is and even made up a few on my own but I just can't seem to get it all off.  I had to do something when my son ask me who a person was in a picture and it almost made me cry because it was me back when I use to model.  My own son didn't know who I was becaues he has always known me as being overweight.  After that and then haveing a long conversation with my  Dr.  who told me that I am going to die of a stroke or a heart attack or if I don't get my weight and blood pressure under control.  So after talking to a few co-workers that had the Lap Band Surgery I made up my mind to do the Surgery myself.  I am a little affraid because I love to eat, but I know that in the long run it will be better for myself and my son.
