Hey there all you fellow banders. My name is Stacy and I'm from Tennessee. My surgeon was Dr. Stephen Boyce out of Knoxville, Tn. I had a wonderful surgeon and all of his staff is amazing. I had my surgery on August 18, 2008. To date I have only lost 13 pounds, but I plan on losing 100 more pounds to get to my first goal of 150 pounds. After I reach that goal, I am hoping to reach my second goal of another 20 pounds to be at 130. :tongue2:

I have not always been overweight. As a matter of fact I was under weight until I was 20 yrs. old and had my first child. My OBGYN never once told me I was gaining to much weight and by the time I had her, I had gained 100 pounds. I lost a little bit of weight and become pregnant with my 2nd child. With him, I only gained 40 pounds.

I was at my highest weight in 2005 at 300 pounds, my lowest weight since I have become overweight was in 2006 at 218 pounds. I met my 2nd husband in March of 06, got a little to comfy and gained to what my weight on my surgery day was which was 264.

I am hoping that with the procedure not only to lose all this additional weight. But to get rid of my back pain and hip pain. To be able to be more active in my kids lives and to have a better marriage and not be so ashamed of my body.


Date of Surgery: August 18, 2008

First Fill: September 15, 2008

We are the exact same height and starting weight! How are things for you now? Any more success?

My goals have been smaller weight loss increments, I think its more encouraging to Celebrate smaller victories.
