My story is some what interesting. I first decided to have my surgery after my younger sister had it done and I saw how much weight she was losing. I had my surgery in Feb. of 2007. After my surgery I started losing weight right away but seemed to have some issues with heart burn. Finally one night in August the heartburn was so severe that I had to go to the hospital. I came to find out after 12 years of trying to go pregnant and losing 40 lbs just 5 months after surgery that I was 4 months pregnant. Yes!! That means I lost 40 lbs my first 4 months of pregnancy. We were so excited. I went in and had all my fill removed. I gained back only 25 lbs during my pregnancy. After I had my daughter in Jan. 08 the weight just seemed to fly off. Within a year I had lost a total of 90 lbs. Within 1 1/2 I I had lost 115 lbs total wieght and weighed 140 lbs and had so much energy.

In May 2010 I found out I was pregnant again. This time I ended up gaining back 75 lbs. After I had my 2nd daughter in Jan. 2011 I was down to about 215. Since then I have really struggled to lose weight. My current weight is 195lb a year and half after giving birth. I have gone in several times for fills but my metabolism is just not the same. I am glad I have lost some weight but it just seems to be taking forever this time. Hopefully in my next update I will be back to my prepregancy weight.
