My name is Jodi, I am 36 years old, married, three kids. I'm not really your typical wls candidate, I am 5ft tall, starting weight was 197. Now down to 183, with a surgery date of Feb 16, 2007. I am having the procedure not because of vanity, but because I have a history of gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy and now have Insulin Resistance Syndrome, borderline hypertension, and am already on cholesterol meds. My entire family is overweight and has health issues. It's hard for people to understand why someone who weighs less than 200 lbs wants to have this done, but I am doing it for my family, so my kids have a mom for a really long time, and so I can keep up with and enjoy my kids. Plus there does come a point in your life, when you're tired of being the frumpy mother! People who have never had a weight problem don't understand that in today's society if you are fat, you may as well be invisible! Wish me luck with my surgery in seven weeks, I feel like when I wake up in recovery, I will be like a newborn baby on my birthday!
