<p>Well, I've been overweight to some degree since puberty. It's easy to write this here than to actually speak this, face to face. &nbsp;I was raped by several boys in our new neighborhood (we had moved the summer between 8th grade and freshman year) and that is when my weight gain gradually started... I was never obese, just too fat to be normal. &nbsp;Farm fed, pleasingly plump, &quot;healthy&quot; were all terms used as descriptors.</p>
<p>I've been married nearly 30 years now - and will be turning 50 in April. &nbsp;We have two lovely , one great son-in-law and a fantastic grandson!</p>
<p>My weight has been (more or less) stable for the past 3-5 years. &nbsp;I've actually worn out a pair of jeans HAHahaha!</p>
<p>I don't have any health issues related to my weight (other than degenerative arthritis both knees - need two replacements) and am really excited about my future for the first time in a long time! </p>
<p>I had a Lap-Band over gastric pleating on 12/12/11 with Dr Mark Fusco, LifeShape.net. &nbsp;</p>
