My story is just like everyone else's. The struggles of gaining and losing the same 100 pounds, that eventually turned into more. Every diet out there, I have tried. I've bought that T-shirt, worn it, out grew it, gave it away.. The story line is just like the same ol' song, just a different singer.

I've watched a million commericals about weight loss, focusing on that magic cure. Of course, the logic side of me, knew --- There is no "magic" cure. I beat myself up for not having the will power to succeed. Of course, I would lose, just to gain it back plus some. Who didn't. Last year, my hubby and I purchased our first home. I was so excited, lots of planning to do, buying furniture, getting new things to make this house into a home. I was lacking something. I couldn't put my finger on it. So, as my backup, I ate. I always ate. It brought me comfort. Sometimes eating would give me ideas!! As crazy as that sounds.. THEN that one moment, emailing a friend at work, munching on chips, the idea came to me... Lap Band!! My friend hooked me up with a friend of her's.. I got busy researching, as I would have to pay out of pocket. Yep, I'm one of those that traveled to Mexico. The whole "enchilada" was worth it all. I know I cried a lot during the process of getting passport, filling out forms, saving money, and waiting. worrying worrying, I did some serious soul searching, knowing that if this didn't work.. where would my path take me.

Soooo.. here I am, surgery done January 17 '08.. I've lost 90 pounds, feel great, energy, getting healthy. Some days I feel like that fat 365 pound person in the mirror, some days I could give "Twiggy" a run for her money.. I have some struggles with where I was and where I'm going, but I know that it was the best thing I could have done for myself. When my will power can't pull me through the day, my band is there to help me along....

I admit... having baggy panties, just makes me smile !!

Congrats on your weight loss!! Though I did enjoy my baggy panties I got tired of them riding up my butt. As of this weekend, I went from buying size 12-14 panties to a size 9. They feel and fit great. Can't wait until I can fit into a size 5 or 6.

I've thrown away several pair.. I kept a pair behind the bedroom door, tacked on the wall.. I want to see in a year the difference in the size.. It's hard to find the right size that fits soo-soo.... This journey is great.. We all deserve a round of applause!! Wahoooo!!

Who knew that baggy panties could make you happy!

Think of those panties when you buy your first pair of thong underwear!

Well done, and thanks for sharing your story.

The baggy pantie thing is so funny. I cannot have my surgery until after June (6 months insurance thing). I had to order a couple of pair of new panties, they came in mail today. I opened the package and said "Man, these are HUGE, well, I don't need to go any further, I don't think. . . I will be sooooooooo glad when my panties are baggy. I know I have a long way to go. I appreciate all of your stories and affirmation that I am doing the right thing. 265/?? 5'7"

Congrats to all of you. May your panties forever bag!!:cursing:

:w00t: Baggy Panties... sure that will be great, I am in a nine now. However, I really am anxious about buying CUTE panties!

My daughter got lots when she was in a five and six, lol I loved buying cute ones for her, even though she was out of the house.

It is my turn now!! She told me she would buy me my first pair of CUTE PANTIES! LOL
