After much thought, I decided to create a blog solely dedicated to my Lap Band story. I had been thinking about the surgery for years but only recently decided to do it because I saw my friend's success in a year. I've always been a big girl and have tried all the "diets" and healthy lifestyles combined with exercise but nothing ever worked. I've come to realize that it's simply genetics and I needed a more drastic measure.
My surgery is scheduled for January 11th, 2012. Today was Day 1 of my liquid diet. The Dr. asked me to lose 10 lbs to help shrink my liver before surgery. God help me. I've done liquid diets before but this is on a whole new level!! It's safe to say that I'm hungry, a bit weak, and have a headache! Let's hope tomorrow runs a bit more smoothly.
So there you have it. I'm a big girl with an even bigger dream!! I look forward to hopefully sharing my success story with everyone. Can't wait for this exciting new journey!!
