I've been a heavy set girl all my life. I've always been fairly comfortable with myself and all my curves. I've been active until getting arthritis and mobility being cut drastically making exercise impossible. I'd been interested in surgery but didn't want to seem lazy. However now it's needed...

I had a lap band in 2009 only lost 27 lbs. On 12/15/2014 will have the band removed and bypass done. Goal is to lose 65 lbs and go from 235 to 175 lbs. Hopefully it will cure my sleep apnea, diabetes, high blood pressure etc. The band experience was not pleasant for me. A lap band is not the... READ MORE

Please don't get this surgery done. Unless you have over 100 lbs to lose. I wanted to only lose 80 lbs. This surgery is terribly overrated. The incisions are terrible, the food you can eat is disgusting. I have chosen to not eat at all because I am tired of jello and cream of anything soups... READ MORE

So this review is maybe 3 years overdue. I was 35 years old, 5'2" and 280 lbs when I decided on the Gastric Bypass procedure.
