lets see...I was 280 at the time I went to my first consult back in Nov 2007. I was banded in Mexico in May 2008, at that time I was 270. Main reason why I decided to have wls was to get pregnant. Fast forward a couple of months, I was 208, size 14/16 and I found out that I was pg with my first child. Fast forward a couple of years, I was 218 when I found out I was pregnant with my second child. After that, I tried to get back to my "sweet spot," but each fill I got, I would eventually have to get unfilled. For whatever reason, I couldn't get back in the band state of mind. I tried to lose weight on my own, managed to stay steady at 250, when guess what...? yup, I got pregnant a third time, but around 4-5mos, we found out we where having twins!!! so of course my weight went up to 306 when I delivered on 12/25/14...cool huh? So this time around I took care of business, baby factory's shut down for good. Now I want to lose this weight once and for all and finish what I started back in 2008. I see the irony of my story, but I wouldn't change a damn thing.
