I'm a Mom of two, I have a 6 y/o Son, 1y/o daughter and been with my husband for 13 years.I've always battle with my weight since a kid.My highest weight has been 245lbs when pregnant with my son.I slimed down to 189lbs within those five years,got pregnant with my daughter and shot back up to 242lbs and suffered from "Gigestional Diabetes" towards the end of my pregnancy had to go on a diet immediately was prescribed Glyburide and had to prick my self 4 times a day for the last trimester.Finally gave birth to a healthy 10lb Baby girl and right after was cleared for having Diebetes
At the moment but was still a possibility for it in my future. A year has passed and I've been playing it safe till my yearly physical, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and my BMI is over 39.My PCP mentioned a couple of WLS, I choose the most minimal invasive surgery which was the "LapBand" My Doctor says I'm a great candidate for this surgery do to the fact I was once able to get down to 189lbs on my own .He proceeded to explain how the lapband is a tool to help give me an extra push I need to reach my goal weight (150lbs) and live a normal healthy life for myself and family. so here I am preparing myself for this surgery, trying to learn as much as possible in such a short period of time and hoping this time something will give!!!
