Re: i want to have lapband surgury but my bmi isn't over 40 how can I get this done
In my opinion, thank God that you can NOT have the surgery. It is a waste of your time, energy and money. Do some more research please! Google "lapband>not working" and read the reviews. My dear friend and I both had it done and both of us have gained back our weight after two years. I vomit constantly. She craves sweets like she never did before. The surgery is NOT worth it. I'm sorry I had it done and now am desparately trying to find a way to have it removed, but my employer changed insurance carriers and my new insurance does not cover lapband surgery only gastric bypass! My husband is also upset with how this has turned out, he said I was fine the way I was and he hates seeing me throwing up or not being able to eat. You'd think I'd lose weight...but the things that go down are liquids which tend to be high in calories in order to feel full.
In my opinion, I think this world puts way too much emphasis on being thin instead of learning to accept how God created us. I was a fat baby, a fat child. I was aneroxic as a teen (before we knew what that was). Now I'm a fat adult. But you know what? I am happy WHEN I DON'T THINK ABOUT MY WEIGHT. I can walk, run, play with my grandchildren and people enjoy my company. What more do I need???? What more do YOU need???? Being thin will not make you happy...enjoy life as it already is. God bless you.
