On June 1st 2012 I had been banded for 1 year! One year, and 110 pounds!
I can't believe the things that have changed in my life, the difference one year can make.
When I consulted with the nutritionist prior to my surgery she asked me why I wanted to lose weight. The number one factor for me was this:
|The Summer before being banded, 270' ish.|
|Down 40 pounds September 2011. 3 months after banding|
|1 Year being banded -110 pounds! :) 167!|
Living my life instead of enduring.
I'm never forgetting how it felt to be exhausted ALL THE DANG TIME!
I'm never forgetting how it felt to be the fat girl.
I'm never forgetting how it felt to be AFRAID. Afraid of all the things my weight would keep me from doing.
Afraid of being this girl the rest of my life. Getting heavier every single day.
