As far back as i can remember I have been overweight. I can look through pictures through-out the years and see myself as the "fat girl" in every one of them. I was ridiculed all through out school and going to private school my entire schooling life I was the butt of all jokes. It was a small school and you pretty much went to school with the same people from kindergarten through high school. As I entered my adult years my self worth was in the toilet. I then met and married the man of my dreams. He didn't see me as the fat girl that was worthless. We then had our daughter and I had gained 65lbs while pregnant with her. After the birth I didn't lose the weight but just piled more on after that. 10mths later I was pregnant with our son. So now not only was I overweight to begin with I was now carrying around the excess weight of 2 pregnancies. So after years of trying to get the weight off alone I then read articles about the Lap-Band. I researched for over 2 yrs before I had begun the process to be banded. I started the process in March 2007 and was finally banded Jan. 2008. I weighed 206 the day of surgery and today I weigh 102. Without the Lap-Band I feel that I would have been well over 200lbs again and absolutely miserable with everything in my life. It is amazing what happens to everything around you when something like weight has finally released you. I went back to school to finish my R.N degree after many many years of putting it off. My family is happier with the new me, now that I am active with my children and not at home hanging my head in shame. The Lap-Band has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. I did it for me after taking care of everyone else for so many years and neglecting myself. It was time to do this for myself. There has never been a day that I have regretted my decision, even after all the hard days it has always been worth it.
