i have tried exercise, with little results... i have been researching all kinds of options, from lap band to liposuction to tummy tuck to gastric bypass. and i am still undecided on what i really need to do. its hard to be a severely overweight person in california, with all these pretty people surrounding me. i am always uncomfortable. and i fear for my health for the future, because i know that being obese can lead to likelihood of heart attack or high blood pressure, leading to stroke. could anyone help me out, and point me in the right direction? thank you so very much.
