I have battled with my weight since junior high. I was overweight in elementary but I was not concerned then. I have been as low as 165 lbs in my adult years but now I am at my highest weight ever of 280 at 34 years old! I have tried fitness clubs numerous times and several diets. I lost weight just before my marriage to my lovely and supportive wife but I have since gained that weight plus more. While my job is moderately physical I find that I am having a hard time and having to work slower than I would like to. My wife and I have 2 boys, the oldest one is 30months old and he is a cancer survivor of Retinoblastoma (he had to have his right eye removed on April 29,2012 at 18months to save his life!). Our youngest one is now 9 months old. I NEVER want my kids to have to deal with the humiliation of one of their mom's being obese! I also want to get pregnant and have been told by the fertility clinic that I must lose weight. I hope to have surgery as a tool to not only save my life but so I can enjoy every moment in a healthy and productive way!
