Hello... I am a married mother of one adult daughter and one step-daughter. I was born in Los Angeles, CA. I currenlty live in East Texas. As far as I can remember, I have struggled with my weight. As a child, I suffered from frequent ear, nose and throat infections. Because of these infections, I rarely ate and I was under-weight. My parents tried very hard to force me to eat, but it wasn't until I had my tonsils removed that I started to enjoy food. During my teen years, I developed into a very shapely but petite young woman. My weight at that time was actually good. It wasn't until after high school, that I began to gain weight. When I started college, I got back down to my old high school weight. I remained that way even after having my daughter in 1992. It wasn't until 2005, after I had a ovarian tumor removed that I began to pack on the weight...Since then, I have dieted over and over again, only to re-gain the weight back. I made a decision to stop the madness and to get my life back on track. I researched the lap-band and I decided that it would be the best choice for me to get healthy and the improve my quality of life. I am scheduled to have surgery on May 25th. I look forward to keeping you posted on my journey.
