Good morning, Linda!
As you see, I made your post its own thread - it should get more comments this way. WHAT were you doing up at 2 AM???????
and you're right - surgery IS the last resort... why did you choose the lapband? ya gotta choose the right one FOR YOU, and be sure to discuss all the options with your surgeon...
which brings me to another point. go to the session. the doc will review all the options, and discuss why the choice isn't a one size fits all. You'll probably also get the chance to talk to post-ops and ask them Qs about their life afterwards. And, of course, we're happy to give you our experience as well.
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
