Seconds? No thanks, I'm full.

I know how hard it is to lose those extra pounds (I still have my holiday weight from a couple of years back) but I'm only talking about a few pounds. What if you wanted (or needed) to lose 60 pounds or more? You're probably thinking - where do I start? If you do fall into the category of obese, and are determined to lose the weight but could use a little help, you should consider a lap-band ventura. Basically, an adjustable gastric band is wrapped around the upper part of your stomach, creating a much smaller pouch, making you feel 'full' while eating less. The great part about this (compared to the more drastic gastric bypass surgery) is that it's reversible. And because the laparoscopic procedure used to attach the band is done so with only small incisions (and cameras) it is much less invasive than regular surgery. It can actually be performed on an outpatient basis.
