Lap Band Surgery...Is it for you?

I don't know about you, but I've tried just about every diet out there including going to a doctor for prescription diet pills. It's really frustrating but nothing seems to work. I've considered lap band surgery but I'm a little apprehensive because it seems so new. I've known people that have had it and had no problems, but I'm kind of a "fraidy cat". The lapband is adjustable and can actually help cure certain medical problems including: diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, hypertension or other serious conditions.

People who have had the lap band surgery have experienced many of the following:
* 74% improvement in dyslipidemia
* 94% resolution of obstructive sleep apnea
* 55% resolution of hypertension
* 100% improvement in asthma
* 75% resolution of diabetes
* 79% resolution of reflux

With diabetes being a constant concern for me since it runs in my family, I've really started to consider this as an option. I'm trying very hard to lose the weight myself, but I feel like I go on this way for much longer that I may not be able to lose it. As I researching the procedure, I ran across these amazing before and after pictures. For a serial fat girl, that's some major inspiration.

Clinical Weight Loss

Have you ever thought of going to a clinic that specializes in weight loss treatments? I have considered this more and more of the last couple of weeks because it is so hard for me to motivated and stay motivated. I think that if I could get some real medical help that it might work. In the past I have used phentermine which is an appetite suppressant commonly used to assist in weight loss. There is a doctor here in Orange City and he prescribes Slimming Pills such as this to help with the psychological aspect of dieting and then he also teaches you the correct nutrition and fitness routines that should be followed. I really like phentermine because it works by sending a chemical to your brain that tells you that you aren't hungry thereby eliminating most cravings.

I'm sure there are other clinics out there such as The Online Clinic. The Online Clinic offers everything from prescription weight loss aids to Propecia and Cialis. The Online Clinic activities are regulated by the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency therefore it is safer than most online companies.
