So what is the Lap Band anyway ??

Some of you may be wondering what is this Lap band all about anyway and why am I getting this thing put in me ?? Well like I had mentioned in my opening post, I'm tired of being tired ! I'm tired of feeling all types of aches and pains in my knees and my ankles everytime I walk. But most importantly I dont want to end up as another diabetic in my family. My mom has it, it took the life of my grandmother this year and I dont want it to rob me of the chance of having a family and a life with my wonderful hubby !!! So i am doing this for me and for my future !!

So what is it that I am getting done ?? Well the lap band is a restrictive device that helps morbidly obese people lose weight by doing 2 things that we are unable to do by ourselves with plain diet and excercise. That is # 1 control the amount we eat, # 2 keep us from being hungry all the freaking time so that I can make the right choices to lose the weight. There is a ton of info available for a million different sources and if you want to check it out and learn some more about it take a look at these sites:

If you want to take a look at what the surgery actually is here's a link to a you tube video..but caution if you're easily grossed out skip it !!!

Gotta go, alot of preping to do tommorow !!
