My story!  Hmmmm I think its the A typical story always the fat kid and did every yo yo diet in the book to successfully loose was easy but to keep it off was my downfall.  I was depressed about gaining weight while pregnant with my daughter along with all the other drama that goes along with being pregnant and having a horrible relationship only made things worse in the gaining weight department.  I was sick and tired of being fat but the pretty fat girl!  So one day I was watching Big Medicine on TLC and saw a special on lapbands and I said OMG I have to get me one of those... So I started my mission to get one.  I had surgery on Jan 30, 2009 and as of today I am 1 year out and down 60 lbs and I couldn't be happier!  I'm hoping to lose 40-50 lbs during year 2 and maybe find LOVE!  Yes Love but a healthy Love.  Over all I'm happy to have my life back and it just keeps getting better by the day!
