After much prayers and soul-searching I have decided NOT to have weight-loss surgery on Monday. My wonderful hubby and I agreed that the risks are just not worth it for me. I have told my doctor that I would still like to have the lap band removed due to the complications.
This means I will continue on my journey the old-fashioned way, through exercise, tracking my calories intake, and following a low-carb diet. I hope and pray that I have made the right decision.
