I have pretty much been a big girl since I was young. I started to gain weight when I was about 8 and I never thinned out like my parents thought I would. The pounds kept packing on. In high school I maintained at a big size but at least I wasn't gaining. I reached almost 300 pounds a few years after I got married and then I lost a good amount of weight. I had 4 babies and steadily gained all that weight back along with a co-morbid disease, DIABETES. After my last baby, I tried to diet and exercise to lose weight and get rid of the diabetes but it wasn't fast enough. My A1c numbers kept going up and I needed to do something about it really fast and so I decided to get the lap band. I hope to get rid of the diabetes along with all this extra weight that I put on over the past decade. I'm ready for a new me.
