Ok so I'm a 33 year old fun and family loving wife and  mother of 4 who finds herself at 311 pounds and totally turned off by it. I've always known that I could be heavy but never thought it would go this far. I've found myself gaining 20-25 pounds a year since I was about  19  maybe I've lost at the most 15 pounds at a time but never been able to keep it off and never more then that. Sooo a few years ago when my mother had gastric bypass and lost a good deal of weight I was intrigued but felt like I could do it myself ... well a new baby and  130 pounds later I realize I need some help. Not to mention I also found out I have an under active thyroid and even with medication have not been able to lose any weight. I have a low pain tolerance so gastric wasn't for me but after lots of internet research and support group meetings I've decided that I want to go lap band so as of today August 9 2009 I am awaiting a surgery date I've met my suergeon and can't wait for that phone call to tell me I've been approved. I have lots of questions and lots of feelings I need to share with people in my same boat  so to speak.
