my journey began on friday 2/4/11. I weigh 247lbs and my weight loss goal is 135lbs. i am having surgery on 2/15/11. Im a little nervous but at the same time i know i will be relieved when the weight comes off and my whole being is healthier. I am on day 9 of my clear liquid protein diet. Im doing very well with it .
I am a Christian Baptist and i know the Lord is with me through this whole journey. I love him so much for all the inspiration he gives me through other people and especially my church family. I have two awesome children both boys named Matthew who is getting married to Becca a wonderful girl in June this year. and Tyler he is a senior in high school. I am married to a wonderful man. His name is Phil. We have been married for 23 years and I love him soooooo much he is my best friend and biggest supporter. My best friend in the whole world Is Carla. She is the mother of my sons Fiance Becca. I met her through my son a little over a year ago and it was like we just knew each other for so long. Its amazing how God works. I actually met her at church where my son was going with his Fiance. And we have been close ever since. She is my shoulder when I need one and her love and friendship is unconditional. So here is 2 families that came together through God and their children.
My weight problem began after I had my first child Matt in 1990. Essentially i never lost the baby fat and just got bigger bigger. My problem is im definitely addicted to food. My whole life is surrounded by food. I have to change my relationship with food. I usually dont eat because im hungry, well i guess it starts off like that but i over eat because of the taste and the way if feels going down. I dont finish until im so full i cant move. I also have wicked chocolate cravings.
Here we are 21 years later and i have high blood pressure (i take medication), sleep apnea ( i use a cpap mahine and just hate it), my cholosterol is 225 (i refuse to go on medication because i know that when i lose weight it will go down), i have abnormal liver function im sure due to fatty liver. and i take anti depressants. the only thing i dont have yet is diabities.
