I had a roux en y gastric bypass in November 2000 with Dr. Emma Patterson in Portland, Oregon. I weighed 260 pounds, I lost 100 pounds in 13 months. My goal weight was 150 pounds. I never got to goal. The same month I hit the 100 pound mark, my boyfriend committed suicide and I gained 10 pounds in 5 weeks.
I maintained that weight for a few years until I got pregnant. My husband left me during the pregnancy and I decided to eat to survive (as opposed to drinking alcoholically or killing myself). Since that time I have tried Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) and I went to inpatient food addiction treatment for 6 weeks in June of 2009 at Turning Point in Tampa, Florida.
I am back up to my starting weight of 260. Life has become all about my weight; trying to walk up the stairs, find clothes that fit, bend over and tie my shoes.
I having a revision to a doudenal switch on November 22, 2010 - the ten year anniversary of my RNY!
I'm tired of being part of the living dead. Here's hoping for real change!
