Prior to LAP BAND surgery my weight fluctuated but not from fad dieting. I would start a work out regimen, get bored, and then stop only to start again. At my heaviest, I was 224 pounds on a 5′ frame. Now, I’m proud to say that I’m a BARIATHLETE. Most of my days begin with a 5:00 AM run and end with an evening run or some other type of work out such as tennis, swimming, or CrossFit!
