About Me

I am very excited to get my band! I have struggled my whole life with my weight, and have been on almost every diet out there. Low carb, no carb, slow carb, low fat, no fat, VLCD (790 calories a day, they actually had started me at 640, but when I was almost fainting at school they upped the calories!), nutritionists, Dr. Bernstein and Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig too many times to count. Even when I was slim in my late teens/early twenties there was never a time I wasn't overly concerned about my weight. I have wasted too much time and too many years worrying about being fat.


I'm not just doing this to look good. I am prediabetic, and very concerned with the state of my health. My dad dropped dead last year of a heart attack. There were no warning signs, and he appeared to be healthy. Now, in hindsight, I can see the things about him that were not so healthy. I don't want that to happen to me.


With all that said, the last few years have been very difficult, and I allowed my eating habits to get way out of control. I think I basically just gave up. I have a two year to think of, as well. I want to be a healthy and active mom for him!
