I've considered bariatric surgery for so long, I actually gave myself a deadline to lose weight or go under the knife. I've seen failures and successes (I'm an OR nurse.) Actually, three nurses at my job had surgery (two had RenY, one had Lapband). Slowly they've all gained some back, but not to where they were before. I wouldn't say they eat healthy, and I never hear them talk about working out. I think when it comes off so easily and quickly, we lose sight that we still have to work at it. It's such a cliche, but it's a LIFESTYLE CHANGE. Good Luck! I'm hoping the fear of going under anesthesia will make me lose weight, because I'm terrifed of having surgery.
