The Craziest Thing Happened to Me!

Hey Everyone! I have a crazy story to share with you and I need your help!

So my crazy story begins with a friend of mine, who posted on her facebook about a competition for a free lap band surgery worth $15,000! I have forever struggled with my weight and after giving birth 6 times, have pretty much done my body in....I don't have as much energy as I'd like and I keep trying dieting and exercising and dieting again and again with little when this opportunity came up I thought, "what the heck", I'm gonna give it a try! Well, guess what? I got a call on from the Surgical Weight Loss Center of Utah on Tuesday. They told me that out of 1,000 applicants, I was in the top 5!!! They liked my story and my reason for wanting this surgery! I felt pretty lucky! Yesterday they had me come into the office where they went over the lap band procedure, had me meet with a psychiatrist, nutritionist, exercise specialist and the surgeon! They called today to let me know that now I go public....yipes, big gulp, deep breath.....going public means that my story will be posted on the blog, they will air radio commercials on FM 100 (a local Utah station) AND local television commercials! I got to do a fun photo shoot today! My pictures is posted up above! I had a blast and afterwards had to pinch myself so I'd remember I wasn't a supermodel but a wife & mother to 6! That's how much fun it was! The surgical center has been amazing and their staff are the kindest people! My picture & profile is now posted! So go on and please vote for me over & over again!
And thank you to EVERYONE for your wonderful love & support!
