I got married in October of 2010 and married a wonderful guy that has a 5yr old little boy. He is like my son. Ive been large my whole life. My goal when i started my journey was to "be a normal girl". Ha ha. What is normal. But anyways i decided in July of 2010 to take my problems to a doctor. Durig my journey i had to lose 10% of my body weight over 6months i did that. And finally 7months later i got my band! Feb 24 2011 - A NEW BEGINNING TO LIFE!
