Finding "skinny me"

At 275 I am considering bariatric surgery but thought I would check out "Spark people" first.
It is now 5/12/12 and I am still trying to figure this sparkpage out.
I had the LapBand surgery on 4/12/12 and have lost 19 lbs. This is the best decision I have ever made and I just wish I had done it earlier.
UPDATE: 7/31/12: I am glad I had the surgery but have finaly realized even after surgery weight loss takes ALOT OF WORK! I thought the pounds would just fall off like so ...

I exercise 5-6 days a week and it makes me feel so powerful and "in control" of my health and LIFE. I cant stand the feeling I get when I dont exercise..Like I am a failure and will never change, with zero energy...you catch my drift.

SparkPoints: 6,540

Fitness Minutes: 575

My Goals:
1. I want to be able to paint my toenails
2. Go sky-diving (they have weight restrictions)
3. get a breast reduction.. in my dreams!

My Program:
1. Stop setting unrealistic goals for myself
2. Take baby steps
3. At least 30 mins cardio every other day
4. Say something positive about myself and another person each day

Personal Information:
I am married with (3) adult boys and (2) wonderful grand babies. I live in Central Illinois and was born and raised here. I did not have a weight problem until my last difficult pregnancy 15 yrs ago. I am working on having a positive attitude in life (change your words, change your life (Joyce Meyer, Bible teacher) I have finally learned to stop judging others because they do not do or act the way I want them to

Other Information:
I am totally into "holistic" medicine. I meditate daily (pretty much), I do yoga (for overweight people) and I practice accupressure and have done some accupuncture in the past. I TRULY believe this is where our health-world is headed to: people are figuring out All THOSE MEDS our doctors have us on is NOT worth it. The side effects of some are worse than the actual "symptom" itself.
