I'm a Beauty Enhancement Awards Contestant!

 

This album is an official submission to the Beauty Enhancement Awards. (Read more about it.)

 

I'm competing in the following categories:
Best Female Massive Weight Loss Makeover

 

My Personal Statement:
After my 8th child, I gained weight and kept gaining. I had always been skinny but now I was dealing with this weight issue and no matter what, I couldn't lose the weight. It was depressing, I felt awful and it was taking its toll on my knees and back. I had heard about Gastric Bypass but that seemed a little too drastic as it can't be undone.
Then I heard of the lap band procedure, I attended the seminar and did everything that I needed to, to qualify me for the procedure. What else was great was that it was covered by my insurance.
I went in and had the procedure done and although it was a slow progress, I have made it pass my goal weight, and I feel so much better. I have energy that I haven't had in years.
I maxed out at 262 pounds and set my goal weight to 145 pounds and as of this date I am at 140.
I have never regretted having the procedure done, it has been a boost to be able to do the things that I couldn't do for years. I highly suggest and recommend this procedure for those who need to lose weight. It is wonderful and the best part is that if I wanted to, which I don't, I could have the lap band removed and there would be no damage left behind.
You have nothing left to lose but the weight and poor self image.
