Sometimes after the little dude goes to sleep I just sit here and mindlessly scroll through social media. The other night I was doing just that when I stopped....scrolled back up and saw something that an old high school classmate posted. It was concerning his wife. So even though I hadn't really spoken to this friend in quite some time I thought I'd check it out because it said something about her needing help.
I opened the link and quickly got the gist of what was going on. I read all I could there and then got back on Facebook and sent her a friend request. If there is any way at all I can help get her succeed then I'm sure going to try!
Let me give you a little background about this amazing lady: She has endured SO much in her life. She battled depression from an early age and after her parents divorced she found comfort in food. She was widowed at the age of 25 and because of that tragedy she developed a severe drug addiction in her attempt to cope. However, this isn't a story about someone failing or someone blaming the hand they were dealt. This is a story about a true survivor who refused to let life keep her down. She kicked that drug habit, she went to college and will soon be graduating with a degree in accounting WITH HONORS! She has a great family (including four children) who support her endeavors unconditionally. However, there is one aspect of her life that is still haunting her. I know so many of us (myself included) have struggled with weight and that is why I'm bringing this story to you today. Sara researched and found the option that was best for her about 5 years ago. She opted to get lap band surgery (as many people have). This was going to be the answer to the one struggle she couldn't get through on her own. Now, almost 5 years later, she is having nothing but trouble. At this point all she wants is to have the band removed but is hitting nothing but brick walls.
