i am 24 years old i weigh around 300 lbs im really thinking about taking a break from school right now .. im not feeling well to the point im missing classes already i can't afford to fail and lose my fasfa because i keep getting sick ..its to the point that i may have talk about getting the lapband a little sooner because its getting bad to the point i can't shake off headaches and my left shoulder has been killing me and is tight in which i have been trying to put hot !! cloth on it to make the tightness go down .. its not working ..im scared if i dont do something now i am going to die point blank i have to be real with my self ..my parents got weight surgery my dad got the lapband and my mother got the ganstic bypass my mother is sick with a iron defult and my dad got his lapband removed because it didnt work for him. but i think because they were older and already was set in thier bad eatting habits it didnt work my motheron the other hand has lost a little weight but not like she should have lost more but fail to complete the doctor appointments. so it failed for them but i am worry that i may fail it as well because i love food i cant help it when i am upset and just depression i eat and when i have money i eat because i cant afford to buy clothes or nice stuff because it cost alot of money ..
