SO Im writing this blog entry in hopes that someone whos further along in this process may be able to help me...
I had my first fill about three weeks ago and for the past 2 weeks i have been on holiday.

I am looking forward to this not being the case some months down the track...
Hit you up later
So lets start with the introduction
I'm Angela, I am 19 years old, I live in Auckland, New Zealand and I am a second year Education student in Universtity. I decided in october of this year to have the lap band surgery and i am due to have the surgery this wednesday (25th November 09).
I'm starting to have worries about the surgery now... I have been big my whole life and the concept of being thin is such a far off concept to me that i am stuggling to even believe that is a real possibility.
