I made it! It's been one year since my Lapband surgery. I have lost 50 lbs. I am so happy, my self esteem is way up and I feel really, really good! I'm not kidding when I say it's been a tough year (some say this is the easy way out), because a lot of you know exactly what I'm talking about. It may have been tough, but well worth it because i want to be and stay healthy. This is a life changing commitment from me to myself. I am halfway to my goal weight and am so excited and plan to be an inspiration to all.
