You are not overweight enough to need the surgery. The lap band takes 3 yrs for you to reach full weight loss. You need to do a few weeks of a liquid diet with good quality protein shakes (Bariatric Advantage or Injury) and you will lose weight. Then keep it up with counting carbs and exercising.

Yeah, try eating less and moving more. Lapband isn't going to cure your obesity. You will lose weight but once you learn how to over eat with a small stomach, you'll be fat again in no time. Learn what to eat, how to eat and exercise.

50 isn't that bad, go on a strict diet, I'm in a similar situation and have lost 23 since the end of March.
