Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I was a over eater. Everything to excess. Emotional eating wasn't really a problem, but when I did eat I would eat large portions.

UPDATE 2008: On January 22, 208 I will have completed 4 months of my Medically Supervised Diet required by Medicare.
I am having the Lap-Band Surgery because the Dr. that takes my insurance at the hospital I have chosen only does Lap-Band. It is not worth me going to a different hospital because I feel as though God has placed me in these people's hands.
I chose Baptist Hospital with Dr. Charles Morton III, M.D.
I have had my Psych. Evaluation and passed it.
I have had my Thyroid Panel Done.
UPDATE 2007: On January 28,2007 I was granted my disability via a judge in a hearing. I have recieved the papers I need to get my insurance but am waiting until I get my cards to go to the doctor. I am living on my own, caring for myself with help from my family since my X left without a word to be on his own. I say better for him. I am happier now than I have been in a long time.
UPDATE 2006: I was married for 8 years to a police officer. On January 1, 2006 he walked out. Said I was too much of a burden. Now, I have no medical insurance, and my application for disabilty has been pushed back further and further. I don't see any hope to go forward most days. For now, I just exist.
STARTING DATE: I have always been a heavier girl than most. At high school age I was probably about 50-60 pounds over what was the norm, but it was by no means my highest weight. I worked for years, in home health until I got married and I stopped working in home health due to a back injury. I went to work for an optometrist and did that for several years, until the office was sold and I was expected to know more than I had ever been taught. I was made fun of and talked about and I just couldn't see continuing that kind of work enviroment.
