Although I am overweight, I have been told that I am not overweight by a big enough percentage to even be a candidate for such surgery. (this was done in a general discussion about wight loss choices)

If I did have enough to lose and my health was at stake due to the excess weight, I would do it just to stick around and see my children grow up, marry and have my grandchildren!

My 9 y.o. son's Kindergarten teacher had the surgery the summer before DS was in her class. She still says nothing but great things about it overall.....she does say that the initial period right after the surgery isn't quite so pleasant since you can only have liquids.
