I did not begin to be overweight until after the birth of my first child when I was 19.  Slowly my weight creeped up but I did not become obese until I had three children in 3 1/2 years and started working out of town at a stressful job that required alot of traveling and an open kitchen!  With small children, a husband on shift work, and eating on the go all the time healthy choices were not made and before I knew it I had packed on over 100 pounds.  I could successfully diet and lose 50, 75, and 100 pounds but would always gain it back and more.  After ten years of yo-yo dieting I finally made the decision to have the lap band and am hopeful this will assist me with my life maintenance.  My husband was also banded, five days after me, so going through this together has been an enormous source of support.
