If you have tried everything that you can think of to lose weight and have failed perhaps you can look into getting lap band surgery. I like many out there have really struggled to lose the weight. I have tried the gym, I have tried pills and diets, and even drugs from the doctor, meal replacement, you name it I have tried it.
I am currently trying to do the research for the lap band to see if this is something that I may be willing to give a go. It is really not about looking good, or sexy or thin – it is for me to lose weight so that maybe I could fall pregnant. Also I just want to be able to feel fit again and do the things that I can’t do now.
So if you need information for Australians please look to the links above and below and talk to your local doctor about it, perhaps go to a seminar. For people in Melbourne please refer to the link for information and locations.
There are also support groups available to you before and after your surgery which will assist you in handling the process emotionally. We all need help sometimes to weigh through our thoughts and feelings, after all you would be having a surgery and I am sure it won’t be the most pleasant thing you deal with in your life.
Good luck to you all and if anyone has a story about their surgery please email me or comment at the end of this post.
