About Me

  • Gender
I have been overweight most of my life well from 12 years old and on. My weight has always been a struggle, even at my smallest weight of 191 I was still considered overweight for my height. I have tried everything and its always yo-yoing for me. I thought that if I could get this lapband it would help me to actually lose wight gradually and keep it off. I dont have really any major health problems but I am getting up there in my weight and I would like to halt things before they get any worse. I made the decision before my twenty fifth birthday that I would go through this process and see what I can accomplish because I think it can and will be amazing with the right  help. I want to be able to feel good about my weight and go into a regular size person  clothing store and shop, I think that would be an awesome goal for me and thats exactly what Im going to work towards. Right now Im in the beginning process of my insurance phase and so I have six months to finish with my weight ins. I already have one month down and Im guessing that the other six are going to just fly by.  So this is the beginning of my journey then :)
