Hi, my name is Sara. I am 35 and have been overweight since I was 9 years old.
I have long been aware of the fact that I overeat and even most of why I overeat, but have never been able to get a grip on it.
My weight is climbing and I am officially now unhealthy. I want to be able to walk and breathe again. I don't want my joints to hurt. I want to stop avoiding going out because I have nothing that fits, and oh so many more reasons I want to take the weight off.
I am scheduled for surgery for the lap-band on 1/27/10. I am very excited, not scared except that I may not be able to go back to work the following Monday as planned.
I am doing the pre-op diet as ordered and already seeing some weight come off. I am having headaches and yesterday was very hungry despite the protein shakes, but sticking with it despite these.
I will try to maintain this blog just to document my own progress, and hopefully I will look back on this one day and see how much progress I have made! Wish me luck!
