February 2012 I had lap band surgery for weight loss. Unfortunately, my esophagus was closed off by the band in March 2012 and I was unable to eat anything other than clear liquids. June 2012 I finally got my surgeon to recognize my problem and had the band removed. As soon as the band was taken out, I wanted to EAT! And boy did I eat! I ate anything I could get in my mouth! I gained 57 lbs back.
February 18, 2013 and a new surgeon, I received the gastric sleeve surgery. I am now post 2 weeks since the surgery and down 22 lbs. I have joined my local gym and am working with a fitness counselor who has created a tailored work out for my needs and will be receiving reevaluations every 3 months to chart my progress.
