Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
Before fifth grade I was always a decent bodied girl. Then the summer before 5th and 6th grade came along. The summer of my mom's divorce from her second husband... the one that threatened to kill us. My mom made us stay locked in the house all summer, trying to protect us. That is the summer that I gained 50 pounds! All there was to do was eat and watch T.V while my mother worked. Since then I have been overweight, no matter how many times I have tried to lose it. I have not weighed less than 216 pounds since I was 16. I currently weigh 383 pounds. I never really understood why I could not lose weight, why I never seemed to get smaller no matter what I did. I did not have a huge problem with food, with the exception for that summer....

I have not had my surgery yet (2 weeks and 3 days left) but Dr. Maguire, all his staff and all the hospital staff at Miami Valley Hospital have been GREAT so far! I have so much confidence in them and they have confidence in me!!
