Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
HA! Control and weight in the same sentence.... behavioral would be humor.. ya know be the funny fat girl with the great smile, hair and PERSONALITY~ Or my favorite back handed compliment you have such a pretty face.... Its always been a struggle my mind is telling me I shouldn't be eating that but I have NO to self control to stop and then I feel guilty about it so I eat again and the cycle continues. My mind is my own worst enemy at times. The hopelessness, loneliness, the feeling of not being wanted, included in things because of my size or having to watch.. I HATE THAT! Or when people go out of there way to 'help' you because they think you cant because of your size... I might have to do it different than you, but I can still do it! I HATE...

My story that could take a while but to the point I shall go.... I have been over weight my whole life tried most all the diets, the gym low carb, eat less exercise more..etc. I have been looking into WLS for 3 yrs now. I still remember the sickening feeling I got in my stomach the first time I heard the Doc. tell me I was MORBIDLY OBESE......... my heart hurt, my self esteem gone, I pit-tied my self for a bit then moved on to try the gym some more eat less ( you know the drill) . Then my doc at that time suggested the D'S, so I started looking into reading all I could. I went to a consultation with a Dr. in Corona, Ca I was not that comfortable with him and the drive would just not work for me at the time. I waited until the open enrollment for insurance came up and my employment to switch from HMO to PPO so I could find a doc closer to home and that I felt confident in... I found him thanks to a dear Friend of mine Dr. K. I have had my consultation and because of my work I have to wait until Nov. for surgery due to its our busy time of year. I am excited, nervous but looking forward to my life back... I have ridden horses 90% of my life until I gained to much weight to feel good in the saddle that has been the hardest part for me... that is what makes my world go round and not being able to do every thing I used to on the ranch kills a bit of me, but now there is light at the end of the tunnel.... I can't wait to embrace it!
