Do You Struggle With Weight Issues?

I never had a weight problem, so I do not know personally the health issues one faces when excessively overweight. I did however see through the eyes of my friend the struggles she faced while trying to loose weight.

She put her heart into loosing weight, she committed herself to exercise and diet, but nothing seemed to work for her long term. Along with the physical and health issues, she was experiencing mental issues as well. Withdrawn, depressed and had zero self-confidence.

As a last resort she decided upon weight loss surgery . As she researched her options, she decided on The Lap-Band System. This is the only adjustable and completely reversible weight loss surgery available in the United States.

She had to travel to the center, but had laparoscopic surgery in the morning and was calling me in the afternoon to tell me she was already in her hotel. She explained it as having a band securely put around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger stomach. This will restrict her food intake. She will have support through groups, message boards, receive education on nutrition and get recipe ideas, along with extensive follow up and after care, all provided by this system.

I believe she finally found a system that will enable her to get her life back. I'm looking forward to watching her journey to better health and improved self-esteem.
