My Story

I guess I should tell you a little of my story ...

I have always struggled with my weight never to the extent of 252 pounds but that weight just crept up on me.  I never even seen it coming.  It was like I woke up one day and there it was ... ugh worst day ever realizing I was 2 hundred plus pounds. I've lived at 252 for the last 8 years and have struggled to get it off.  I've taken 50 pounds off about 2 or 3 times and then somehow got discouraged and gained it back. 

I talked about WLS forever but hubby was against it and now he is my biggest supporter.  After 3 years of going back and forth with it we finally agreed that it was time.  The whole preop thing took about 6 months and I was terrified.  Every step closer I kept feeling like i was going to back out.  I was scared of failing at this but somehow pushed thru those feelings.  I never thought that I would be able to get this far but here I am!

 So if you're reading this and are going thru these same emotions keep pushing its so worth it! Once I was banded I never looked back and I don't allow those negative thoughts back in my head.  If you want something bad enough you keep trying untill you get it.  I'm going to succeed!

so i'm late to blogland..

Ok so I'm 3month 3 weeks into my band and kept putting off blogging about it but today is the day!  I came home sat down and decided to start typing. 

Ok so i got banded June 3rd 2011 and am 45lbs down.  I've realized I'm a slow loser...hey at least I'm a loser :).  It hasn't been easy at times it seems like its a never ending diet but i didn't expect this to be my magic wand ... poof fat be gone! Wouldn't that be wonderful but lets face it in order to get results you have to put in the work so that is what I'm doing.  My commitment to myself is to make this happen no matter how long it takes. So won't you join me in my journey and watch this fat melt away i need all the support i can get :).
