I am 27 years old and a mother of two beautiful girls ages 3 and 1. I am currently seperated from my husband and will be going through a divorce shortly. I have always been chunky but my weight really came on when I was a sophmore in high school. My asthma was bad and I had to stop playing sports, I was on steriod medication to control it, my eating habits went down the drain and I was depressed over the deaths of my nephew and my sisters mother and father in law. I have always been an emotional eater. By the time I graduated from high school I weighed 200 lbs. My adult life has been between 200 and my current weight 253 which is my highest.
I was subbing for the school district and had applied for a paraprofessional position. I started that position this January (2009). I was fortunate enough to have BCBC TX TRS which covered both the lap band and the gastric bypass. I choose the lap band because I like that it is removable, less invasive and adjustable. When I found this website I viewed mostly RNY before and after pics and was discouraged. I had second thoughts until I finally found the lap band before and after pics. I was so encouraged and motivated by the members on this website; I knew that the lap band was the right choice.
