I have been overweight for most of my life. When I think back to when i was first 'overweight' at age 10 I didn't know then it would be a struggle for me for the next 30 years. I realized today that for as long as i can remember i have been 'on' a diet or 'off' a diet - and i am tired of it. I want the freedom from the control that food has over me.
I am waiting for my surgery date - i should hear next week - it is not covered by insurance so i am paying for it myself. It is the best investment i could make - ME!
I am looking forward to my lap band journey and my new life i am leading.
