Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
My life was a mess. I was depressed and angry all of the time. I had battled with weight most of my life, but it just kept getting worse. I was 135, then 175, then, 200, then, 220, then, 245, I topped out at 261. I was at an all time low emotionally, my relationships suffered, I couldn't hold a job, I didn't even want to be around me.

I started my life off chunky, it wasn't until I was about 12 that I slimmed down a little. Then I got pregnant at 17 and gained over 100 lbs and gained even more after I had her. Then I got a divorce, slimmed down to a "decent" weight, that didn't last long. I gained and lost gained and lost, then finally there was no more losing it was all gaining. I had my 2nd daughter, again i gained more weight after I had her. I was 28 years old and walked like an old lady. My body ached all of the time. I had no energy, no motivation , no love for life anymore. So I set out for surgery, I had, had enough, my kids deserved to have a mom, not a couch potato. I already was a patient at Park Nicollet, so I checked out their bariatric program, picked out the HOTTEST surgeon, holy crap is he handsome, and I had my surgery May 17th 2011. I weighed 261 lbs. I now hover between 155 and 160. I feel GREAT! I feel alive, my children are happy that we do things now instead of hanging out at home.
