So far Dr. Tanner has been great. I have only seen him twice and I won't see him again untill my surgery. He is a very nice guy. Easy to talk to and very patient. The staff at University Surgical Associates have been great also.

I really don't ever remember a day that I was not fat. I remember wearing those hideous polyester pants to school because it was the only thing that would fit me. Going to the doctor because I was sick and my Mom and me being chewed out because of my size. The first time I went on a diet I think I was 8 years old..My doctor sent me to a nutritionist who helped me and my mom make a menu. My mom tried really hard to help me. but she was a great county cook. My favorite meal when I go home is meatloaf, pinto beans and cornbread. Yummy. so I was never going to lose weight and keep it off living with her. I loved her cooking too much. Still do. Everytime I go home we have a special breakfast of eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy. That gravy is better than any other gravy in the world. Guess why. It has sausage and bacon grease in it. Yep it is literally to die for. Oh I am going to miss that stuff big time. So
I know that I weighed 117 the summer before 5th grade because I had meningitis and was in the hospital and still couldn't lose weight. I gained steadily through the years and did every stupid diet there is. Around 220 in high school. 240 in college. Got down to 200 before I got married when I was 23. Boy did it pile on after I had my sons. I have average 5-10 lbs. ayear since. Now here I sit at 309 and miserable. I started looking into WLS in 2004 and got nowhere with insurance and started pursuing it again last year. Now here in March of 2008, I am almost there. I really can't wait to get my life back.
