I have been over weight my entire life (from Birth)!! I have been told a thousand times how pretty I am. i actually won a Lane Bryant Modeling contest years ago. My weight never was an issue until the past year. I gained another 80lbs and started over hearing comments in resturants and me eating and etc.. I October of 2008 I met my Jamin who became my husband In September 6, 2009. He is absolutly wonderful. Amyways we wanted to start a family and my OBGYN suggested I lose 80lbs or so before we try so I began the lap band process. I just got banded on May 26.2010. I am still trying to decide if it is worth it. My recovery has been quite painful. Today wasnt so bad but Thursday was horrible and Friday wasn't a walk on beach. Saturday I was better and Today I left the house.
