Well for me, I started to gain weight after I got married, almost 15 years ago, but really took off once I had a baby and became an at home mom. Obesity run very strong on my mothers side of the family and so, I guess you could say that I take after her. My weight has caused me a lot of sadness and as I have gotten heavier, the sadder I have become. I use to go hiking with my husband and daughter, now they go with out me. I hate missing out on things in my daughters life and I hate saying... Momma can't do that.
I remember the first time my doctor talked to me about having wls, back in 2005. I just about laughed in her face. I thought come on.... It can't be that bad. .... I can lose this weight on my own... I said it all. Believe me. Well then in 2006 I was in a really bad accident and I remember how horrified and embarrassed I was when the EMTs started to take off my shirt (I actually begged them not to!) and then when they had to lift me. OMG I was mortified! Once I was at the hospital, it took THREE people to move me, and then really they should have had four because they all but dropped me. I guess you can say this was the moment I knew I had to do something about my weight and that I was going to need help. It just took me another two years to get here.
So as of today, I have a surgery date, but I'm still waiting on my insurance approval.
Wish me luck!
