With over 60 percent of Americans being overweight, we definitely have a problem in our country. Unfortunately, I have to include myself in this overwhelming and quite depressing statistic. If you have struggled with your weight, then you know that with hard work, exercise, and eating right you can lose the weight. However, there are times when even with all the hard work that perhaps you need more of a medical intervention. Everyone is different.

One of the latest, and safest weight loss intervention is the lap band surgery. This surgery is suppose to be one of the most non-evasive surgeries. Of course before doing any type of elective surgery you must first, decide if the lap band surgery is right for you. Second, read testimonials. Talk to people who have gone through the procedure. Thirdly, attend a free seminar. You can pretty much find the seminars anywhere now. Fourthly, check your insurance to see if it covers the lap band surgery. And I will add a "number five" to this list. It is so important to find the right lap band doctor that fits you. Your needs. Has the experience with the lap band. Has a good reputation.

If you live in the Woodland, Conroe, Houston, Kingwood, Huntsville, and Spring, areas in Texas, then I have a recommendation for you! Dr. Richard Collier is a lap band specialist, with 31 years of surgical experience behind him. Dr. Collier is known for his person attention to each patients needs, and has the only outpatient Bariatric Center of Excellence in the city of Houston!

I think the lap band surgery is worth looking into, if you are one that is struggling with weight.

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
