I had been over weight my whole 35 years of life. I was always the fat girl, the chubby chick, or the big girl. Never wore bikinis either !!
My highest was 289 and my lowest was 180. It has been a up and down battle untill nov,2010 when i decided to get a lap band. Everything went well and i am now on my way to weight loss and keeping it off for once !
I love food, and i love to eat, I come from a family of farmers so most of my family is overweight on my dads side.  My fater actully almost died from his diabeates so i knew i could not get to that point. i just looked on line and found a surgeon and went through all the steps to get my new tool in my belt !
I am glad i did, allthough I just ahd a slip and had to have repair surgery, im still very happy and cant wait to continue my journey where i left off
