Hello. I am 37 years old and I'm overweight. My bmi is 44.6 and I got approved for lap band . My surgery is scheduled for March 23. I wasn't always this size. Believe it or not. I used to be in a 5/6. When I got married in 2001. I went through every size and then stopped at size 18. I have never been in a size larger than a 18 but I am still miserable. I'm so excited about this surgery. I have tried every diet,diet pill, and exercise plan. This hopefully works better. I will keep you all posted.
