Convincing my spouse....

Recommended Posts

As of now I haven't scheduled a surgery or anything else for that matter as I still need to discuss this with my wife. I feel like I've already made up my mind but I have no idea how to tell her right now.

A little history....

I'm a 34 year old male that had a heart attack and triple bypass at 31. I've asked my Cardiologist and she thinks I am a great candidate for the surgery, especially since I've been over weight my entire life and dieting and exercise just don't work. Fast forward to today and my wife and I have a newborn son, just 5 weeks old, and I feel more now than ever that I need to lose this weight so that he can grow up with a father. I lost my own father when he was 42 because of similar build and health history.

I think the biggest obstacle that I will have with my wife is the finances.

I'd like to add one more thing to this topic. Back in 2007 I was lap banded. I had such good results that six months after my WLS, my wife came to me and said she wanted the band. No convincing there, she was sold on that the lap band worked.
