  1. Thank you all for the reply's I enjoyed reading them all. An looking at the additional information that was left for me was good as well. So for those of you who have lost a lot of your weight already does your skin bounce back any? I have had 4 kids on top of being over weight and prior to having children I was small. I have seen both ends of life from skinny rock climbing hiking chick to struggling with some things and wouldn't attempt rocking climbing at current weight but would love to go again someday. So what has helped you on this journey to better health? For me this is about getting into better shape and health. I want to do things I use to love to do when I was small. One I will. For now I am eagerly awaiting a response from my insurance company. Thank you all again.
  2. Ok I am just getting started waiting for insurance approval but looking for information along the way. My journey may have just started but I want to make sure I am knowledgeable about what I am getting myself into. I am wondering if the band is the best choice for me. My doctor things so but the more I read I am not so sure. I don't want to be one of the that don't work out. I was hoping to lose wt. some what quickly so that I can get into better health since I am diabetic and would love to get off the medications since they make me sick. So if anyone has any knowledge about the band or bypass you would like to share I would love to hear from you.
