Well. . . This is kind of embarassing but I don't know what else to do. I've been to the point where I have weighed 315 pounds, and I've been down to as low as 220 pounds. My weight fluctuates like crazy, and I have always been on the heavier side. I am trying to lose weight to live a healthier lifestyle as well as to get a career in law enforcement or a fire department. Currently I'm at 270, and I'm getting somewhat desperate to lose this weight. I work out at least 5x a week, consisting of cardio and lifting weights, but I can't seem to take the weight off lately. I have been dieting and excercising fairly well for over a years timespan now, and I've been consistantly between 250 and 270.
My mom is also heavy and one of her friends did the lap band and lost a ton of weight. She wants me to go to a seminar with her tonight because she's thinking of doing it herself, so it has been getting me thinking if I should get it done as well.
Anyone have any experiences with the lap band, anyone that has done it, any advice at all?
