First the bio part:
Married to my best friend Anthony for 16+ years.
No kids. I have 3 birds (cockitiels), some fish and a cat who is like our son. He is toilet trained and everything.
I work full time at Boeing.
I am going to school in the evenings seeking my BSBA
My husband is a Pastor of a home church.
I love to read and quilt. I love all music and of course I love food. Hence the over 400lbs starting point.
Now onto the story of my weight:
I have been a little overweight my whole life but I didn't get obese until my early 20's.
I had a tramatic event occur that forced me to retreat and hide and food became my best friend. Follow that up with a boyfriend who was a "chubby chaser" and the lbs just kept on coming. I found myself 21 yrs old and about 150 lbs overweight.
Of course even though I have dealt with the issue that caused the initial weight gain, once you get to this large, diets just don't work by themselves.
Like many others, I have tried them all and have had some success but nothing perminant.
I recently went on Atkins because my Dr wanted me to loose 10% of my weight before he would do the surgery. I lost almost 60lbs so far so I know I can do it.
But, I don't want to gain it all back just to yo-yo.
The surgery is my tool to keep me on track. I can do it, I have done it. I just need that extra help.
Please feel free to add me as a friend. I would love to have some friends on here for support.
Scheduled for Lap Band on March 2nd.
