Welcome to Day one
My name is Donna. I am a corporate trainer for a major communications company. I am 280 lbs as of today.
I am having difficulties in doing everyday things. I can not walk a long distance. I can not climb stairs without losing my breath. I travel a lot for my job, traveling in a tiny seat in an airplane is uncomfortable for me and my row mates.
I am addictive to Pepsi, McDonald's, and fried foods. About 10 Years ago I had Lapband surgery and I did really well.
I went from 280 to 185. I enjoyed exercising. But a piece of chicken got stuck and the liquid from my band was removed. I started to gain the weight back.
I got divorced and moved to Tucson az for work 3 years ago. I went to a bariatric dr. here in Tucson. He told me that lapband failed for 90%. He has suggested the revision to the sleeve. I am on my third month of a weight loss program that is required by my insurance. Of course, I have not lost any weight.
So my journey is beginning again.
