Typical story.  I was born fat (9 lbs. 3.5 oz), was a fat kid, fat teenager, fat woman.  Thing was that I never minded that.  I thought I was the sexiest thing alive.  UNTIL about five years ago when the scale stumbled over that 300 lb. mark.  I couldn't believe it.  I was ashamed and depressed.  I didn't think I was sexy anymore and so I fell into a depression.  I ate and I ate and I ate.  And I got bigger and bigger until I weighed 330 lbs.

One day a co-worker asked me to go with her to a weight loss surgery seminar because she wanted to get the Lap-Band.  I went with her initially to support her, but by the end of the thing I was ready to make a consult appointment.  I met with the surgeon shortly thereafter and about six months later I had my surgery.  Since then life has been a bit interesting.  I can't eat as much as I used to, I have more energy than I used to have, and I'm starting to think of myself as that sexy mama again!  So it is totally worth it.

I hope you enjoy my page.  I will try to keep it updated with lots of pictures, progress reports, reflections, rants, raves, recipes, whatever.
