Weight has always been a problem for me since my first pregnancy. Before that I was a size one or three. In 1996, I remarried and I became pregnant three yrs. later with twins and reached 310 lbs.

In 2002, I was diagnosed with an auitoimmune illness and couldn't lose weight due to steroid use. By 2008 I felt much better with meds and decided to go back to school. I also decided to start the GNC "Release" program and lost 80 lbs.

Of course, after not being able to afford the program, I gained it all back. I now have the AS, hypertension, high cholesterol, thyroid disorder, and Medicare approved the banding due to these medical comditions. Below are my present stats.
