Hi my name is Laura and here's my story. When I was little I was very thin. When I turned 17, it was summer I remember all I did was chill n lay around, also that year I started continuation school. I gained alot of weigh too. When I was 18 I got pregnant with my 1st son. My weight was 170, n after I had my son I was 210. My sons dad said we where gaining weight so we joined La Fitness but I didn't care how much I weighed, I was happy I had my family n it didn't really phase me. After 6 months, I noticed my sons dad started doing stuff on his own, was out me, my weight...When my son was 1, my sons father n I separated.. At that point I weighed 250. I didn't do nothing, my mom helped me care of my son, I was lost & depressed, I didn't do nothing. I decided to join myspace, all my friends where on, n it was a new way to friends. When my son was about to turn 2 I weigh 280 pounds, I still didn't feel big, I felt the same way from before, like nothing changed. I remember it was in the summer time, I met him, n we where just friends, on myspace. After 1 year he asked me if I can call me to say happy thanksgiving, I said yea. He came over in December of that year he wasn't like other guys he was different. He fell in love with my son, n later we dated, he didn't make he feel bad about my weight, he said we can work out together. I got pregnant with my 2 son, n i was on high risk pregnacy. I couldn't do anything. I had my son in October of 2007. I stared to feel different. I was fat :( I stared to go to there gym every day after work which kinda sucked cuz I was a manager there. I lost all my baby weight 30 pounds, n weighed 280. About one year later, I was 240, I got pregnant with my daughter n was on high risk pregnacy too. I was down big time, but had to do what was best my daughter. After having my daughter I weighed 28. When my daughter was one, Randy n I got married. I got my tubes ,n my Dr said I can't work out for 2 months until I heal. I remember gaining so much, I went threw many diets, slim fast, hcg, water pills, metoblite, n working out... My dr said he refer me to a weight loss surgeon, he said I was on the tip of having diabetes n weight 320 pounds.I remember going home to my husband telling him my weight, n he was shocked just as I was. I told him I wanted to get lap band n he was totally against it n says you can do it with out surgery. I Gave him 1 year to help me, n it didn't work. I now weigh 280, but he hasn't gave up, n neather have I.
