Hi, My name is Angela. I had Gastric Banding done about 7 years ago and between the band and I we failed each other. After 7 years my doctor and I have decided to do a revision from banding to gastric bypass. I had my Roux-en-Y surgery done on Jan 3 2011. Thank you for all your support and prayers. Keep them up I need them over the next few years.

Goals (something I promise myself I will get done for myself and for my health)
1. Go through with the surgery (haha) (Completed)
2. Lose at least half of my weight by the time 6flags opens in May
3. Size 20 by May 2011 ( right now im a size 28/30)(COMPLETED)
4. Size 16 by Aug 2011 (my birthday)(16 is tight but 18 fits good)
5. Size 12 by Christmas next year
6. Be able to walk up the stairs with no pain in my knees(Completed)
7. Be able to run 1 mile on treadmil or on the street with NO pain and NO stopping to walk
8. Riding a bike again ( haven't since I was like 11)
9. Wear regular shoes (no extra support because I'm fat and my feet hurt)
10. Shop at Target/walmart or other name brand store for my clothes) (Completed)
11. See my feet (lol) (Completed)
12. Wear a nice bathing suit and feel good about it
