Hello!  I am 27 years old and I am in a great place in my life right now!  I am doing what I have wanted to do for a long time, which is working on a Ph.D. in counseling educational psychology. I decided to get banded once I realized how overweight I had become and frankly I had just had enough!  The odds were against me really, to lose weight from just a diet and to keep it off. And trust me...I tried over and over and over! I was an active teenager who was in fairly good shape.  But,I gained weight through all of the numerous years I have been in school, and now is the time for it to come off!  I am excited to finally be banded and I am continually working through all of the new feelings and listening to my body.  I look forward to doing everything I can to make this tool work for me and feel wonderful.  I was able to drop 100 lbs at right around 5 months post-op.  I literally work my butt off for the success that I have had.  I hope to hit my ultimate goal of weighing 170 lbs by Jan 1. 2011.
