I was never extremely overweight, but I could never reach my goal weight. I tried everything, including diet pills and I could never lose the weight. Until now. My life changed son much after my gastric band surgery. When I started losing the weight I liked the way my clothes fitted me and my self-esteem improved. I tell people considering surgery no to think it twice. Surgery is the best investment you can make!

    This is a story I never tire of telling. The positive changes that have taken place in my life are almost too numerous to mention. Many of these changes I have experienced are private and personal; much of it I can share, but perhaps not in print! ;o) The year before I was banded (1999) my weight was at an all time high. I was miserable and quite frankly, I had given up. I had tried everything and I was tired of...*
