It started in 2009 when my husband and I were sitting on a new deck we had just built on an empty lake lot and after some conversation my husband said he would pay for me to have a weight loss surgery. Never thought much more of it until...
I noticed one of my best friends loosing weight I asked her how she was doing and she admitted she had the lapband surgery in Oct of 2010. She was a big gal over 300 pounds. and I knew I didnt want to get any bigger. I was pushing 250 pounds and wearing a 3x for shirts and size 18 in jeans. The last five years I had an office job and was putting on 10 pounds a year from sitting in a chair for 8 hours a day..
So I remembered what my husband had said and began to look into this with the same surgeon that my friend had choosen and never looked back.
I have choosen to keep this rather quiet...other then a couple of my closest friends and my husband my community doesnt know. I know I should be ashamed but I dont want the small town talking about me either. I bought an elipticle, started HMR diet, quit my office job and began my new life...

It has been 10 months and I am down 42 pounds...my first goal is 50 pounds so I will be out of the 200's.

Its been a struggle recently, food not wanting to stay down, I have good days where I can eat and then I'll have a few days nothing stays down. The last three nights I've noticed I'm gurgling and will wake up with a cough and then throw up...I go to the Dr. this Thursday to see what he think. No fill, is what I know.
