My story is really no different than most people who are suffering with obesity. I have been over weight most of my life, however my weight went over 200 pounds after the birth of my first child and I was never able to lose the weight. Of course my lack of not following a healthily diet and exercise has added to the my weight issues. So after years of failed weight lose and yo yo dieting I have decide to have WLS.
There are so many reasons why I want to have weight loss surgery, but the main reason is so that I can live a healthy life style. I have been obese all of my life. I know and feel that my health has started to deteriorate because of my obesity. In the last couple of year I have started to feel the effect of the weight I have been carrying around. I am finding that my knee hurt when I walk and I have lower back pain. In addition, I was diagnosed with HTN, elevated cholesterol, and asthma several years ago (and recently OSA).
I fully realize that WLS is only and tool and in order to be successful I have to change my ways of eating, become more active and most all to be part of a support group. I have made of my mind that I am ready to take the first step of many to healthy life style.
