I SO don't 'do' photos... but this is my current size. Can't wait to post a thinner photo! 8/27/11

A change in direction

Just a quick intro for now... more later. :)

I had actually decided to have Lap Band surgery. But, after unusual circumstances with not just one, but two different surgeons occurred, I began to wonder if God was putting these obstacles in my path. So, I determined to try to lose the weight without the surgery by living as though I have had Lap Band. My mindset is strong and I am already making progress. I have a very long way to go, but feel encouraged and focused. ...

My Goals:
I have 60 pounds to lose ideally, although, truth be told, I will feel incredible when I lose 30!! :) Taking it all one day at a time with my eyes on the long term goal.

My Program:
I am monitoring every single thing that I eat or drink. (LOVE the tools here at Sparkpeople.com!) I am walking daily and using a pedometer to be aware of my activity level. Trying to make changes that I can live with forever.

Personal Information:
I am a Mom to two wonderful sons (teenager and pre-teen) and am married to a very supportive fella (who has no weight issues at all!). :) Love my life, just really, really, REALLY tired of looking the way I do. Ready to be more active and feel attractive again.

Hi Laura, I am so glad to meet you. I met De'Etta when our chaplain husbands were stationed in Anchorage, AK. How do you know her?
I knew someone who had lap band surgery and wondered if I could have success if I just ate like I had the surgery. You have given me hope!!
How long have you been using Sparkpeople? You are making awesome progress! Good Job!!! emoticon

Your story sounds familiar but in mine a friend had lap band surgery and lost a bunch of weight. I did a ton of research and came to the conclusion if I just ate and exercised as if I had a lap band then I would lose the weight too with out surgery or the complications. I have now lost 67 bls. You can do it, trust me. :) Good luck on your journey!
