My story.......well, I'm 35 years old and as of today 360 lbs. I have been overweight just about all of my life. I was filling out some paperwork and had to ask my mother at what age did I first have a weight problem. According to her----6 mos. At 3 years old I ahd the heigt of a 6 year old and the weight of a 9 year old. In other words I was a mutant (or felt that way at times). Throughout my school years and through high school my weight problem wasn't too bad. I managed to be at my heaviest only about 50lbs overweight. Then came college. Food was my coping mechanism. It helped me through the rough times, the good times, and the in between times. In many ways food became my best friend and companion. Unfortunately it still is today, and that is something I am now trying to change. It is difficult to say goodbye to a best friend but I know I cannot truly live as long as I have this weight. That is why I finally made the decision to persue the lap band procedure. I have my seminar at Norton's Hospital in Louisville, KY on July 17. And to get myself ahead of the game I had an appointment today with a Bariatrician to help me get weight off before the surgery. I have been fortunate with the weight I carry and have very few health problems outside of the weight but I am hoping to prevent that. I will keep you posted on my Journey.
