Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
Before deciding to have bariatric surgery I was miserable at 371 lbs, I sat all day at work and did not exercise as that was not a word in my dictonary. I was tired all the time and would work, come home change into my pajamas and in bed sometimes by 7 PM I totally had no energy.

I have been overweight all of my life and I have been on every diet you can think of. In 2006 I was diagnosed with interstitial lung diease and a enlarged heart. I was told that I needed WLS to try and get my weight down to take pressure of my heart and lungs or I would not live to see 55 my lung dr and family phys told me. So I started my journey to get approved in January of 2006 I had to fight the insurance company to approve the lap band because they said my BMI was too high for lap band they wanted to approve RNY which my surgeon said I was not a good candidate for it cause of my lung diease. SOOOOOOOOOO I had to appeal this decision from insurance and finally was approved in July of 2007. I had my surgery LapBand on 8/31/2007 my beginning weight was 371 lbs and as of todays date I am down to 246 and have many more lbs to loose. Its a battle but am willing to do anything to improve my health so I can see my grandkids grow up and graduate.
My family is everything to me.
