My Journey...
Growing up I was the Fat kid. I was the chic that everyone said "you sure have a pretty face". No matter how big or small I was, I love myself.  I know now that was the KEY! The key to get me going. Woke up one day took a long hard look and realized im holding the key. Ive had the key my whole life. For someone that loves herself sooo much why would i not be living a healthier life? What the heck have I been thinking? Took me 29 years to see. Long hot summers of not being able to keep up with my kids at the ball parks took a toll on me. Time to take a stand! I decided to have the lapband done after talking to a friend that had it done. Yep thats what im going to do. Im going to get me the lapband.  On Dec 30, 2009 my life changed. O boy did it change. Althought its not the easiest thing in the world. I would do it over tons of times if needed! I just have to keep in mind that I hold the KEY.The band can only do so much. Its a great tool. Learn how to use it. I CAN DO THIS!!. Right now my life is Great. Im 78 lbs lighter and feeling really good. So with all this being said my peeps If you are reading this and you too are thinking of getting banded. Do your homework and just know that you too can do it!
