Hello, My name is nicole I am a 30 yr old female with 2 sons Isaiah who is 12 and Elisha who is 5. About 4 years ago I was diagnosed with mutiple sclerosis since then I been in the hospital 7 times for a week at a times. My last relapse was in september and it affected my right eye I was blind out of my one eye.It started getting but then the stress came again and its started going backwards again so in Feb. I moved from the problem and into another problem but in Jan i started getting boils under my arms I found out it was another condition I was going to be stuck with. lol my luck so i prayed to my god that these boiles would go away before I had to move and they did. I started doing some research on my skin condition and my multiple sclerosis and both conditions stated that weight loss wouldnt cure then but would calm them down. So here I am.
My doctor suggested the lap band in November and I decided I was going to do it the end of Feb. March 3rdd was my first appointment I waighed 305 .01 and I stepped on the scale and today and I was 287 so that makes 18 lbs lost.My surgery date is June 13.I am currently in college taking up a real estate sales person course smh it is so hard but god be the glory. I have 2 boys and they are my eveything they drive me crazy but they are my world. I also met a wonderful man Feb 04 2011 online that I feel in love with and I am working to do all I can to bring him home to us. ( he lives in Nigeria) but this is my live my journey my world. No one ever said it would be easy but all things are possible with god on your side....well this is my story I hope you liked belessed
