My name is Kelly and i am an emotional eater. I began to gain weight in 1995 when my only child was diagnosed with cancer. I continued to gain weight over the next 11 years while he was in and out of remission and treatment. I used food to comfort myself when I should have been going to therapy/ grief counseling. My son lost his battle with Ewing's sarcoma in 2006. I miss him dearly but also know that I will see him again one day. I feel very blessed to have been his mother for the 23 years he was with me. I began my journey of healing 5 years ago and during that process I have come to realize that it is a choice one must make to began living again and I choose to live my life to the fullest until the day comes that my savior calls me home to glory. I have tried many diets, life style alterations,medications and programs all to no avail. I would either gain the weight back or here lately - the weight just would not come off. I made the decision to have gastric bypass. I am currently 5 days post-op and just starting the next phase in the journey of the new me. I am excited for what the future holds.................
