My story...... hmmmmm
I have left this box blank for weeks...not sure what I define as my story. I am a single mother of two....Jordan 17 and Chelsie 15. I have been parenting them "alone' for 12 years now after a nasty divorce. I had a very athletic background (cheer leader, gymnast, softball etc.) ...but seems like after child bearing, the weight began to pile up. I am only 5ft 2"....shorty for sure!! I just finished 7 years straight of schooling, and now have a Bachelors in Psychology, and a Master's Degree in Counseling. I can literally say I "ate my way" through that last degree. Between full-time work and school...and 2 teen agers.... whooooooooa I "stress" ate!
I developed sleep apnea (2002) , am pre-diabetic, and have had high blood pressure (as of 10/11) for almost a year now.. I am currently taking meds for both and have used a c-pap to sleep with since 2002. I have a close college friend that began looking in to WLS in April. We have a similar health history (minus the sleep apnea). Long story short, I had contemplated the WLS in 2002, but was mentally at a very unhealthy stage in my life, and did not go through with it.
I was approved for Roux-en-Y bypass surgery, and will go under on 8/29/12. I am extremely nervous, but have a complete FAITH in my maker, and know all things are possible through him (Philippians 4:13).
Thanks for listening....and best of luck to all on this journey!!!
