Hi everyone!  I'm Kathy, a 42 year old single mother of 2 college age boys and a nurse.  I have spent my life taking care of everyone else and now I am ready to take care of myself.  I have struggled with my weight for at least the last 18 years.  It has slowly crept up over the years and now I find myself at 299 lbs!  I have been watching lapband surgery stories from a distance for a long time, and then a few months ago, I reconnected with an old girlfriend from high school that I hadn't seen in about 15 years.  She had the lapband surgery one year ago and has lost 100lbs.  She looked fantastic!!!!  I grilled her for hours during her visit asking every question I could think of - and by the time that she left, I knew I had to do this!  I want my life back - I'm tired of being tired and letting life pass me by.  I  have had my consultation, and am now waiting to see if my insurance will pay - it is sooooo nervewracking!!  I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas lol.  Now that I know this is what I want, I can't wait!  This looks like a great site and I am anxious to start looking around on here.  Thanks for listening  :)
