Wow. My lapband story. Thats a work in progress. I will have to revisit this section. It just started a year ago and I am still losing - slowly. I have pretty well stablized at 166 and a size 8 and am pretty happy about that. I know I could work out more so thats my "head" issue. I still need to work on some emotional issues such as feeling fatter than I am. I read an article recently that compared it to an amputee that still felt his leg. I related to that. I still don't see myself the way my family sees me. I don't feel comfortable in my body at all times but its getting better.  I wouldn't trade it for the world.  So my story... its a work in progress. Stay tuned.
