[font=georgia][b][i]Hi my name is Mary, I have been struggling with my weight since 1997 I was maybe 152 or 154 pounds. I was about 18 years old when I got pregnant with my oldest child I gained so much weight. I went from the size I stated above to 241 pounds. When I had my daughter, I lost maybe 20 pounds I exercised and walked a lot but the most weight I was able to get down to was about 175 to 178 and my weight loss just came to a stand still. My weight then just fluctuated around 178 and 205 nothing seemed to get the weight back off I've felt I have tried every way and everything to get the weight off but nothing brought my weight below 200 pounds. Over the years it has been a struggle and the pounds have just been constantly hanging on like a sticky bandit. Well, I had a few more pregnancy's but only one survived out of the last 4 pregnancy's I had. And I think I just felt into a depression stage that caused my weight to just sit still. My youngest is four years of age I went from 207 to 281 pounds with her and since then it has been miserable and impossible to shed the pounds. I had a ruptured pregnancy after my last kid and I just can't seem to do enough to get my stomach back down. I still look like I am 10 month's pregnant it is embarrassing when people approach me and ask am I pregnant, so I made up my mind to have the lap band done everyone has told me this is the safest way to go so I am just waiting on that call from the doctor to take that first step to relief of back pains chest and body pain's.[/i][/b][/font]
