I just want to tell my story ... nobody get my brags like fellow bandsters. It all started January 2012 I stepped on a scale and realized I weighed more than. I ever did pregnant. I had reached 260. I had started hiding from pictures. Nothing fit right... my kids would make comments like "mommy has a big tummy" or commercials would come for weight loss or tummy wraps to make you look smaller and my daughter would say mommy you need that. I had no energy was depressed. I didn't even let my husband touch me. I had enough. So I went to my Dr we tried a life wellness program. And in it didn't work. In march she suggested I look into the lap band. So I agreed to go to the seminar and after a lot of research I agreed. I went for the appointment with the surgeon and pa. My surgery was approved and I got banded may10. I don't know if I was more excited that it was surgery day or if I would soon be off that liquid diet lol Everything has been great I've lost about 90lbs and still counting. I got sick and had to refill all over again lol. I am soo happy that I did it. I now work and do sports and have plenty energy to play with my kids. My kids say mommy has a little tummy my boys tell me how pretty I am. I got called a "little thing" by one of my residents. I am in a size 10 (was busting out of a 22) and weigh 170. Oneder land lol ...I still have about 30 pounds till goal but I feel GREAT!!! Now I must go my kids are waiting to play Water fight in the hot Texas heat

Congratulations on your band journey.

Nice to be able to keep up with your children.

Mt baby is 35 but I enjoy keeping up with the grandchildren. Just today I was chasing one around and the 8 year old got winded and I noticed that I was no where near being winded myself.
