I am a 37 year old mother of one, who decided enough was enough. I have been battling with my weight since highschool and always had to diet more and excercise more to keep the pounds off. I was always bigger than most of my friends, at just under 5'5" and a size 13 to a 16 during my teen years. As  young adult my metabolism slowed down and I just kept gaining weight. I got married and settled into my married weight. We loved to eat fattening foods and with me a busy college student and working as well, it was easy to find my appetite satisfied with fast food faire. Then with the birth of my son, I added another 40+ pounds which i never could keep off. Sure I could lose 20 to 30 pounds , but it was like a yo-yo, because the weight always found me again. After trying numerous diets, excercise routines, diet pills, fads, etc...I reached my highest weight again....my post-pregnancy weight of 297 pounds. Here I am tired of being tired and obese and wanted to be healthier, be able to be active and play with my son, ride a bike again, walk without getting winded, fit into chairs comfortably, and be able to wear nice clothes in a smaller size. So, tomorrow I am starting a new life, filled with healthy lifestyle changes and i feel determined that I can reach my goals and maintain them. I am so excited about the LapBand. I hope to connect with others on here who are going through this surgery or who have already been successful with it. Here's to the new me and reaching for the stars!
