I don't remember ever being skinny. I was always the heavy set girl with the long hair and pretty face. Through a turbulent childhood my weight only increased. Then after getting married and post having 3 children I woke up one day and found myself at 300+ lbs. I tried diets, weight watchers, south beach, Atkins all produced a temporary weight loss but at the end I gained it all back and more. I have started to work on discipline in my life all around. I always said I would never have surgery, when I was ready I'd lose the weight somehow, some way. As I started to approach the age of 40; I started to really think about taking control of my life. Then I came to an epiphany! "If I could've done it on my own, I would've done it already!" This one moment of clarity along with an acquaintance who had much success with the Lapband brought me to this point. I'm looking forward to conquering my food addiction and changing my life for the better with the help of gastric banding. I know it won't be a cake walk, but I'm banking on it being worth the journey and rewarding.
