Hello!

I'm no stranger to struggling with my weight. I have been big my whole life. Not just "a few extra pounds" big, but BIG-big.

In my early 20s I lost a bunch of weight on medication (around 70 lbs.). It all came back and then some (of course!). Then, after my first child was born I had gained about 90 pounds during the pregnancy. It was at that point that I was so devastated and fed up with yo-yo dieting and losing and gaining weight my whole life that I decided to look into weight loss surgery.

I had lap band surgery in August 2007 and since then I lost nearly 100 lbs. When I became pregnant with my second child, I had to have my band unfilled and therefore gained back about 40 pounds.

I feel like I'm back at the beginning of my journey with weight loss again and am re-learning what it means and what it takes to lose weight with a lap band. I'd love to lose the 40 pounds I gained but would be even happier losing more!
