Hello :) My name is Courtney Mongeon. and this is my story. I am 21 years old wife and mother of two beautiful children, as long as i can remember my weight has been a huge issue. when i was young 0-9 i was Under weight!!! and then something changed. out of no where the weight started to show up.. started at 103 lbs then 140, 160, 200, 220, 260, 290 and 310!!! my highest weight was 310. Now, I have seriously tried everything from Diet pills, eating right... to not eating at all and Truth be told every time i did manage to lose some kind of weight BAM it came back and it brought some fatty little friends with it! Now don't get me wrong. Everyone wants to be thin and what not... but i didn't care about my health.. i couldn't care less about my self at one point in my life, That is until i had my Beautiful daughter Willowmina, i noticed my husband was doing almost everything...simply because he could get to it faster, he has tons more energy and i was just feeling so BLAH. it made me see that i needed to change so i went back to counting calories and trying to get in at LEAST 10 min walk a day. i applied to the Burlington obesity clinic and managed to get to the mental evaluation before i found out i was pregnant.... AGAIN now as you can imagine i was slightly shocked so i forgot about weight loss once again and went on with being a mommy giving birth to a 5 week early preemie named Damon!!. it wasn't long after my son was born that i noticed that tired feeling and the inability to do somethings was setting in. i became obsessed with working out and eating "right" my husband saw me struggling. he brought up maybe going back to seek help with the Bariatrics office again since i was already in there computers. i called them one day upset crying because nothing i was doing was working. and i couldn't understand it. id lose 5 or 6 lbs and it would just come right back. With there help they had discovered that i was Eating enough food to maintain my weight not lose it. With there help the 6 months seemed to buzz by. and here i am surgery is done and i am now losing weight. i want to be healthy, i want to live a long life with my Two beautiful babies and my husband. i want to live life to the fullest because you only live once. i couldn't be any more happy with my decision <3 and i hope to find some friends and support <3 thank you for taking the time to Read :)
