I want to have surgery because I'm sick and tired of trying to lose this weight on my own and failing. I've done a little research though I'm sure I could do a whole lot more on it. I need to lose about 150lbs. to be at my goal weight. I've struggled with my weight before but it's never been this out of control! I live in Canada and NOTHING seems to be covered when it comes to WLS. That frustrates me because I could never afford it. The other thing is.....it terrifies me!!! I've read horror stories and people dying and stuff and I don't know what to think. Then I read stories where it's changed people's lives. It's all very confusing. I've thought about the lapband procedure on account of it's non invasive nature and reversibility but I don't know. I joined this group in hopes that there are some ladies here who can understand what I'm going through and maybe shed some light on some of the issues I have surrounding this surgery. I'm just SOOOOO sick of being fat and nothing I seem to do fixes it!!!!
