<p>How do you put your life into words?&nbsp; It is hard to sit down and write a story of your life when your feelings keep getting in the way.&nbsp; Like everyone else I have been heavy most of my life.&nbsp;&nbsp; I have been diabetic for about 11 years and have 5 year old twins.&nbsp; I have struggled with my weight as of late due to my diabeties.&nbsp; I am very concerned that it will leave me unable to care for my children in the future.&nbsp; I decided one day to have gastric banding surgery.&nbsp; Fast forward several months through insurance red tape and classes.....and here I sit on my couch 4 days post-op and wondering if I have made the right decision.&nbsp;</p>
