My story is about the same as everyone else (nothing unique) LOL! I am 39 1/2 years old and I am about 230 lbs/5ft. I am healthy no health challenges (Just Fat) LOL. I have struggled with weight since Senior High School. I weighed about 135-140 lbs while in HS. I was able to manage my weight by running track and cheerleading. Once I graduated and went off to college that’s when the struggle really began. I was about 140lbs when I found I was pregnant in and went off to college go figure I got pregnant (guess I had too much fun) . My highest weight during the pregnancy was 180lbs. After giving birth, my weight dropped to around 150lbs. Well life kicked in and (2) more children came and my highest weight after my 3rd and final child (LOL) was 256lbs. At that point I decided to try Atkins and did very well. I lost around 65lbs in about 4 months. My weight hung out around 175-180lbs. After 2007, I begin to battle with weight. It was a battle I was obviously losing (LOL). The battle was really fierce this time. The weight was coming way faster than I could get it off. I decided about 4 months ago that I needed some help/reinforcement LOL. I have always been against WLS. I made an appointment w/ Dr. Melkonian and after the awesome consultation, I knew that Gastric Bypass was for me. I begin my process in April 2012. As of today, I have completed my Psy. Eval, Nut. Appointment and my Medical Records were received today. I was told by the doctor’s office that my file is being sent to my surgeon for review and off the Ins. Co. for approval. I am excited and ready to get this done! Stay tuned!
