Hi Spark -Friends ,
My Name is Cheryl ,
I will try to make a long story short -- Even after having my children, I am a epileptic , & have been sense I was a teenager . As a adult, Certain medications didn't work there fore the side effect was weight gain & before the doctor finaley found right meds for me well
I tryed walking when i could & smaller amounts of food ,but when u r depressed, we all know how this goes. I talked to my doctor , Who has told me about the lap band classes ,So I called & registered -from there it started , took it I realized how much u had to give up I was not sure i was ready for it or if I could handle it no smoking -which was my way out of every thing , I took the Seminar in June of 2008 & Mayed all the preperations for starting classes right away but i never started untill novemeber 4th of 2008 12 week program - I complete it , then paid the 350.00 and waited for my surgery date i started weight in novemeber was 270 pounds when I finished my 12 week program I weighed 269 & I stayed this weight till i went in to surgery on april 24 th of 2009 , so say it for making a long story short:
alot had happen in that 1 yr (2009-2010) . I left my home 2 weeks after having knee surgery (5-2010-) & moved in with my daughter & her family . First weight came of easly --& then slowled done --but u need to stayed with & be committed ,it is hard hope fully u have the support of u r family & love ones to help this is will help u alot --excersise when u et the doctors ok to do so & be committed with this to :

UPDATE:--JANUARY --11-2011

As of today 's today ,I have 3 more months before I hit the 2 yr mark of my surgery & my weight is down to 178 pounds i am back with my fiance & back home (11- 26-2010) & we r ok so far & still have a lot ot work on & threw & things dont happen over night ,
my thing to every one is
no matter what the problem work threw it open mind -communication -commitmitment to your self first of all trust u r self talk to peaple make friends who been there or r there keep busy --it is hard -maybe theses things work for me -& my life but every one has different life style & problems do some soul searching -what u want for you & u r life --

It was & is still worth it I feel great !

You can do it -don't - sell your self shot

    Hey sweetdixie, thanks for adding me as a friend.

    Hope all is going well with you...........I'm going thru a bit of a 'struggle' period right now but will never give up.

    Good for you for quitting smoking. That's so awesome. You are on the fast track to good health!

    Have a great day and keep up the good work!
