What's my story? It's that I'm sick and tired of being fat. I've struggled with my weight all my life. The only time I was ever underweight was when I was born (5 lbs 3 oz) . And the longest period of time I was not overweight was from the time I was a year old till I was about 4......then on came the fat.
Yes there were months, even years, when I wasn't actually obese (G-D I HATE that word!!!!), but the fat years have definitely outweighed (no pun intended) the leaner years. I've been researching bariatric surgery for over a year now and about 6 months ago became serious about having it performed on me. I've tried almost every weight loss program (Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem - TWICE, Jenny Craig, ALLI (I was in the study group), all kinds of other pills. They all worked for a while, but here I am.....fatter than ever! I am a candidate for Diabetes (my dad and maternal grandmother had it) and I have high blood pressure (have been on at least 8 different bp meds in the past 12 years). I am completely ready for a new, healthier, thinner chapter in my life. And the sooner the better.
At present, I'm in the process of getting all the testing/clearing taken care of. Wow! What a task that is!!! But well worth the time and effort, I believe.
