My story.....well it was back in 2008  when my doctor suggested I should look into the Lapband.  I was struggling with weight for like 12 yrs.  I had a hysterectomy when I was in my late 30's and I had three most awesome beautiful daughters.  Went from a size 6 7 to a 20.  Went to weight watchers, diet pills...would lose weight and gain all back again, ugh  it was something that would drive me nuts.  I never had to diet my whole life until the past 12 yrs or so.  It has been an eye opener for me.  I never realized how bad I ate and that I never worked out ever.  So my doctor suggested for me to see Dr Balsama at Kennedy NJ  I went and I had to go though all the testes and next thing I know August 5th 2008 I am getting my Lapband, I was so happy and so scared.  I was 120lb person went to 225lb's  and now it is almost two years and I am 143 lbs.  I feel awesome and I have learned allot about myself and my nasty eating habits.  Now I go to the gym 4 times a week two Zumba classes the days of weights and yoga.  I still have allot to learn about eating right...I do ok and I have changed allot,  but it's taking me all this time to realize how bad I ate.  I juice my fruits and make awesome smoothie's with my protein and I juice my veggies......I eat more healthier now.  I still have 1 slice of pizza takes me an hour to eat it but I do and I will eat a half a cheese burger and that's my treat.  But all in all I am doing great and I feel awesome.  One of the best choices I made.
