My name is Shellee. I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart since January 1998. I weighed about 130 lbs when we met and started gaining weight not long after we started dating in 1996. After about a year or so I had gained nearly 100 lbs and nothing would even come close to helping me lose. I have talked about weigt loss surgery a few times, but never felt completely comfortable with the situation or the doctors. After years of trying to conceive with no success I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2003. We attempted 3 rounds of IVF in 2006, again with no success. My original reason for considering the Lap Band was I really want to be a mom and weight loss will hopefully assist in that process. After turning 30 years old I also started noticing changes in my health, due to my weight. I have an amazing relationship, a job that I love and am in a place in my life that I felt I was ready to revisit the option. I found a doctor and office that I immediately fell in love with and the process has, so far, been effortless. I am looking forward to changing myself for the best and living a long and healthy life with my amazing husband, possibly as a mom. <3
