In November of 2008, I was in my Dr. office going over test results. She had called me in because I was borderline diabetes, and I would need to go on medication. While in the office she said "You CANNOT get pregnant" At 27 years old and newly married this was devastating to hear that I was not healthy enough to become pregnant. This led me to seek out information about the Lap Band. The following month I went to an information session. And started my Journey on insurance approval, weight I needed to lose in order to get the surgery and scheduling my surgery August 24, 2009.
