I have been overweight for as long as I can remember. I was always the chubby girl in school. As an adult, I have done the yo-yo thing more times than I care to count. I gained about 30 pounds with my first child, and never lost it, and then gained about another 30 pounds with my second child. Since then, I have lost and gained the same 50 - 60 pounds over and over and over again, and always gaining more back than I had lost. It was always the same thing.......do really well dieting and exercising, lose a significant amount of weight, and then have one "free" day, and gain back five pounds, and that would do me in. I would say forget it, and go back to my usual unhealthy eating habits, and forget exercising. In my mind, it was never going to work. When in reality I was actually right because there is no way that I could live the rest of my life on one of those diets!
But with the lapband, I KNOW that this time the eating right and the exercising ARE going to work! THIS time the weight WILL come off! And I honestly can't wait to begin my new life!!!
