I am a recently married 29 year-old woman who has struggled her whole life with body image, weight, binge eating, and bulimia. In August 2007 I had lap band surgery, which as of this writing, has not helped me lose a single permanent pound. This caused a huge crisis in my life, as I felt at the time that I had tried everything there was to try, and yet I was still trapped in a fat, disgusting body that I hated. I have since stopped weighing myself, but I weigh something in the neighborhood of 210 to 220 pounds at 5’2″. I want to write about my experiences learning to accept and, hopefully one day, learning to love my body as it is.
