I was never an obese child. In fact, I didn’t gain weight till I was pregnant with my son. Prior to being pregnant, I never had self esteem issues and was down right confident. I knew that if I liked that guy, I could have him wrapped around my finger in no time. Funny how life works. I was the girl that most men wanted to be with, and in a matter of months, became the Fat Girl With A Pretty Face. During my pregnancy with my son, I got Bell’s Palsy and the left side of my face become paralyzed. I look like Mary Jo Batafuccos sister. In order to release that pinched nerve, I had to take steroids for about 3 months of my pregnancy. Needless to say, I BLEW UP. I went from 127lbs to 223lbs. I was very depressed and needed to lose weight quite fast. So I tried everything under the sun. I did Phin Phen and that seemed to work. Who cares if I passed out 2-3 times a month due to it, it was helping. I also had a staple in my ear that I would stimulate to prevent me from craving food. I went down to 155lbs and was content with my weight. Not thrilled, but content. Well after having my daughters, getting married and over a course of 11 years, I surrender to the weight, and let it control me. After my third child, I could never get below 200lbs and bounced between 203-227lbs. After my husband and I split up, I became oval. I look like Humpty Dumpty;s wife. LOL It seemed like I hit the scale and it read over night 249lbs. At this point, I was embarrassed, ashamed, and simply isolate myself because I don’t want people that I know to say, SHE WAS SO PRETTY AND LOOK HOW FAT SHE GOT… Thank God the process flew by. I went to see the Surgeon on November 2009 and here we are March 2010 and I am scheduled for surgery. And God know’s this has been a long time coming. I have prayed for this, for years, just didn’t have the courage to go thru with it, and wasn’t ready for the lifestyle. And though I am afraid of failing, I believe that I will succeed with dedication and hardwork. On my 35th bday I got an approval from the insurance company and wasn’t ever aware that my info was submitted. It was as if my prayers were answered. What a beautiful b-day gift. I am tired of rubbing my thighs together as I walk and wearing out my jeans, pants in that area. J Perhaps I will write better story once I have surgery, but for now.. This will have to do… I’m Katt, and this is my WEIGHT LOSS Journey
