I am now post-surgery and very happy about it! The surgery itself was not that bad and recovery was pretty easy. I went back to work after three days. I didn't lose any weight the first two weeks after surgery but it seems that I'm starting to lose now. I've lost 20 lbs and hope to lose another 20-30 before we go on vacation at the end of July. I can't wait!I'm a mom, wife and a working professional. I met my husband when I was 19 and we were married at 22. We had our first daughter when I was 24 and by then I was already gaining weight. I weighed 200 lbs on our wedding day. It's just been up from there, minus the few times that I did Weight Watchers, but I'd only gain it back and then some. At my highest weight, I was approximately 285 lbs. I have two girls - one is 9 and the other is 4 and they are everything to me. I also have an amazing husband that I love very much who has never made me feel bad about my weight. My weight has been the only thing in life that I could not conquer. I decided to get the band to use as a tool because I can get the weight off initially. I just can't KEEP it off. I need the help with maintenance and truthfully - I love food. So, the band has been a great decision because I am learning that food is not the end all be all of happiness. I'm learning to enjoy other things in life. I'm also a Christian and believe that my spirtuality and faith will help me on this journey.
