I am 35 years old and have had a weight problem for as long as I can remember. Of course many of us have the same story - I thought I was fat when in retrospect I wasn't really and how I would love to go back in time with the perspective I have now - yada yada...
Well here I am and have grown to the all time high of 350 lbs., I am 6 feet tall - so basically just a very large person. I am the Mother of an amazing almost 5 year old boy and really want to get my weight under control so that I can do all the fun things in life with my son. I am a very hands on Mom and love to play and run around with him. Unfortunately, that is pretty difficult at this size and it breaks my heart when we are at the park and he wants me to go down the slide of ride the swings with him. These are things I cannot do at this size. I want to be a healthy Mom. When he grows up I want him to look back on his childhood and remember all the things we did together, not remember all the things I couldn't do.
I am currently doing a 6 month diet with a nutritionist in preparation for RNY surgery this fall. I would love to get to know some people who are going thru similar things and also to get to know people who have had great success.
