Hi my name is Maria. I'm 16 years old. I'm from Puerto Rico. Last time I got in to a scale I weighted 220 (that was like 10 months ago) I belive I'm like 250 or 260 pounds or more right now, I have been overweighted all my life. I used to play volleyball and I had to quit because of my weight. I haved tried every diet and never works, I used to go to the gym but I gave up. My aunt just had the lap band surgery a week ago and she is so happy. My family and I think that this surgery is one of my best choices. I am very scared, not of the surgery, but what my friends are going to think about me after all the radical changes that I'm going to pass through after the operation. I really don't know what to do. HELP ME!! PLEASE!!

Hello Maria. First let me say that what you are feeling is pretty normal for someone looking at this surgery. What are you afraid your friends are going to think? Which changes are you specifically frightened about?
