I am a 39 year old wife and Mother of three. Alexandria 16, Abby 9 and Jake 5. I have always been a little over weight my whole life but with each pregnancy came an extra 30 lbs, 40 lbs, 50 lbs!. I have tried many diets including Weight Watchers, Atkins and Lite Lifestyle. I have tried over the counter diet pills and prescription diet pills. I am sure there are many others too. Sure I lost weight on most of them, only to gain it back plus a couple extra lbs. I am tired of being fat, sick of people looking through me like I'm not there. Hoping for the best with the Lap-Band.
