I guess my story's like most of yours. Never was thin,even as a teen, I got married had a child and lost all the weight.Two years later had another child and gained weight, had another child 18 months later,gained,lost a baby, gained, then 4 years later had another child gaining all the way.

Went back to college 3 years bettering my grade each time,Gained weight. I worked with mentally & physically handicapped adults and kids.

I loved my work. I guess it kept me from thinking about my weight.

One day at work I thought I was having a heart attack....Lucky for me it was just heart wall pain caused from my gallbladder.I had High blood pressure and diabetes.My sister-in-law,her son & daughter-in-law all had had gastric bypass. I knew that was not for me.My mom went with me to a free meeting to find out info on lap band. And I knew that was for me !

I have lost 35 lbs. since my surgery on January 30th 2008, My kids bought me a Wii fit for my birthday this past July,and I go to Curves to work out 30 mins. 3 x's a week. I can't even tell you how many inches I have lost, mostly off my legs,thighs,butt and neck and now the thing I hate the most (my stomach) is getting smaller!!!! I am off ALL medications for diabetes, high blood pressure and acid reflux.That saves me about $400.00 a month!

feeling better in my clothes even when the scales say I haven't lost. And my outlook on life is GREAT!:thumbdown: No more pity parties :cry_smile:for me! 'cause I'm with the band! Peg

P.S. Sorry ticker isn't my friend, have trouble changing it.

Hey your weightloss not going bad, everyone loses at different paces, as long as you there in the end is all that matters. Some people excercise more , some cannot excercise much at first then they are all out there,energetic and going for walks,running ,etc.
