Well, I hate describing myself but here goes. I am an RN Case Manager for Hospice. I am severly sarcastic, sometimes to the point of being caustic, I over-analyze everything, and I am extremely independent and goal-oriented. I do not lie, cheat or steal. Well, that is not entirely true. Although I try my best not to lie, I am not immune to the occasional white lie to spare someone's feelings. I simply cannot tolerate liars, cheaters and thiefs. There I am in a nutshell. Now to my battle with weight. I have had a weight problem since I was around 8 years old. I hit 200 lbs in high school. In 2001 a boyfriend left me for a skinny blonde and I went on the heartbreak diet and lost 110 pounds. Went from 258 to 147. Had a bout of anorexia/bulemia. Knee injury in 2003 during a Tao Bo exercise led to surgery and I gained every pound back and then some. I have wanted WLS as long as I have known about it. I lucked out and my insurance will pay for it. I am super excited and nervous at the same time. I turned 30 in January and I took it really hard but I have since decided that it will be the best year of my life. I purchased my first home all by myself, quit smoking after 15 years and will finally have WLS. I am taking charge of my life and it feels great.
