So as I have started reading profiles over the past few days as a newbie to the website I noticed all these stories are so similar to mine... I have tried weight loss clinics, diet pills, exercising and cutting back, weight watchers, cabbage diet and so on.. you name it I've probably tried it. I was like many of you at 5'4 162 lbs 11 years ago I thought I was HUGE... now when I look back I wish I was there. Guess the old saying is true never want what ya have until its gone... definately my story!! Well here I am with two appointments to go and then I too will be a banster!! Super excited. I was married almost 11 yrs ago and have gained about 82lbs. I'm ready to enjoy life again, be healthier and happier. I know this journey won't be easy but I have found lap band talk and it is the best thing yet for me. Looking forward to all of the support this website has to offer. So with that being said LET THE WEIGHT LOSS BEGIN...
