I have been over weight since I was 5 years old. Before that I was very small, but balloned just before starting school. Each year my weight seemed to get further out of control. By high school I was over 200 and have stayed there. In college I lost down to 205. Now at 31 I hit a scary number 244, after a prenancy and miscarriage the prior year I was up to 247. I was freaked out at the thought of hitting 250 or higher. I had looked into lap band years ago, but was discouraged by my parents out of their fear for my safety. This time my husband and I went to a seminar and we felt comfortable for me to go ahead with the procedure. I have a great husband who is very supportive and would like to lose weight himself. My parents were more supportive this time around to.

I found a wonderful surgery and team and so far (a month out) am thrilled I did it. I can't wait to hit onederland.
