About Me

  • Gender
I have been overweight most of my life. I have struggled with dieting and gaining back twice as much very often. I thought I had no will power until I went on the liquid preop diet for 10 days before surgery and realized that this was something that I could do. During that time I had more energy and felt better than I had probably my whole life, not to mention I lost 19 lbs in 10 days. I have a story to tell, although on here it doesn't really look like much, but I wasn't prepared as soon as I logged in that I would be writing it right away. So I am joining this lap band community because I am desparate for support, 4 days post op. I am hoping that this journey helps me shed my excess weight as well as emotional baggage that is coming along where I realize now just what a food addict I was.
