[font=comic sans ms,cursive]I started the process in December of 2011. I attended my info session at that time. My weight at my first appointment was 300lbs. My goal is to reach 160lbs. Im really looking forward to the weight loss and even more the rewards of being a health weight (less back pain, more energy, etc.). Moreover, I don't want to set myself up for disappointment because there are many "band bashers" out there and truthfully, their stories and experiences scare me. However, I have come to realize everyones experience is different and I'd rather take that chance and find out for myself.

Ive been obese since I can remember. My heaviest weight was 305lbs and my smallest weight was 198lbs(In High School). I have two lovely little girls who deserves the best from their mom. Being able to be here for them and being a good example for them are a couple of the reasons why I have decided to have WLS. As a child I was made fun of because of my weight and as an adult I am treated differently. Neither feeling is a good one. However, during this process, I have learned to love the things about me that I once hated. As a result of having surgery, I plan to lose the weight, keep it off and enjoy my life along with the ones in it.
