Hi, I am a 28 year old stay at home mom of five children.  I have decided to get the Lap Band surgery after an experience I had on vacation with the family.  We were at Disney and they have those stupid turn-styles everywhere you go.  Well my fat ass kept getting stuck in them and I would have to turn sideways and push my way through hoping that no one would see.  It was horrible!  That was it for me.  I have always battled with my weight.  I was raised by a single father and he used food as a comfort item.  It worked really well!  So I battled and battled, and I was at my largest a couple months ago when I started my journey.  I weighted 232.  I am in pretty good health for being so obese.  I am finding that I cannot move like I used to when I had weighted less, and it bothers me.  I go for my consult with the doctor on September 13th.  That is when they will submit everything to insurance.  I have a total of 12 lbs to lose by then.  I am down five already by doing the protein shakes.  I am so anxious about losing the other 7 pounds.  I have to get my butt up and moving.  I am just starving now.  All I can think is that after the surgery the hunger will subside.  I know that it will be a long journey, but I know that it will be well worth it!
