I have succeeded and failed on every diet I've ever encountered (Succeeded in losing some weight, failed by gaining it all back and more... RAPIDLY!). I had WLS 12 years ago and was in pure hell for eight years before finally having that strap of satan yanked out. I will lose this weight and do it the "right way" and prove all the asshats wrong that insist that Lap-Band is the only way to go.

If and when my children struggle with their weight, I want to be able to say to them that it is hard, but worth it because it WORKS. And I will be the proof.

I'd really like to connect with other gals (or guys?) on here that are struggling and succeeding but am a bit shy to initiate. If you have something to say, please do!

    Thanks for your comment on my page! With all of the advice about "sharing your journey with a friend" out there, it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who has difficulty talking about all this with my friends and family. And I TOTALLY compare my weight to my husband's! He's 6 feet tall and probably weighs about 180, maybe 185 (and he's one of those people who eats TONS but stays really slender without effort)...and there I was, 5'4" and 244. I'm aaaalmost down to his weight now (189ish) so I'm getting kind of excited about that. :)

    Saw your comment on ILIKETOZUMBA's page, and had to respond! My hubby was SKINNY when I met him, but I plumped him right up! I was overweight, and got to obese while I plumped him up. -sigh- At my highest weight, I, at 5'6", outweighed my 6'2" hubby by about 11 lbs (I was 246; he's not sure but estimates about 235). We started doing the Weight Watchers program together, and he lost 45 lbs while I lost 40. Then I lost another 10 and he gained 15... So he now outweighs me (yes!), but he does need to shed the weight he put on. I'm just hoping I can lose at a similar or faster rate... I don't want him catching me or -- God forbid -- overtaking me again!
