I have been over weight all my life and i have struggled with my weight flucuating up and down. I decided to get the band done when my aunt had the surgery and had great results from it. After the surgery i went through everything that you could think of that they tell you not to plan to do. Since my surgery i have went through a divorce, moved multiple times and also have started school that i am almost finished with. It has been a struggle and i have gained some weight back and I am in the process of getting back on track with everything in my life spiritually, mentally and physically. It has been a journey and i know that it is not over yet and i have a ways to go but i am willing to work hard and to do everything in my power to make this surgery and the band work with me instead of against me.
