I am tired of being overweight, and I have tried other diets, no carbs, diet pills, hypnosis, just about everything. I feel good about this decision to have the lap band. I remember that when my kids were little we would watch extreme makeover and my kids (3&4) would say "Mommy you need to go on that show" My mother has encouraged me to do this. I have not told anyone else except my kids. I just don't want for my to be embarrassed by my being overweight. But mostly I want to loose the weight so that I can dress nice for my job, and feel good about the way I look in clothes. I hate to shop everything is so matronly when it come to plus size clothing. IT IS TIME TO DO SOMETHING FOR ME!!!! I always do for my kids and put my self last.
