Well my story is actually quite simple. I was born fat. Fat is in my genetic makeup. My mom is fat, my dad was fat, both of my grandparents are fat. All my aunts and uncles are fat... to be honest I can't think of one relative I have ever met who is thin.
I was born on June 2, 1985 at the ripe weight of 10lbs 8ozs. I was born with both of my hips dislocated due to the complications during birth. the Dr. said I might never walk, but G-d had other plans for me and after a year of wearing the braces I began rolling and crawling and eventually walking too.
At the end of 8th grade, I topped off at 255lbs. My mom decided it was enough and shipped me off to a WL camp, Camp Shane. It worked! I lost 40lbs in 9 weeks and Started my new school at 216. I had so much fun that summer I planned to go back for round two. In 9th grade I only gained 10lbs, mainly because I was too busy chasing this really cute boy instead of eating, haha. When I got back to camp I was 226lbs and at the end of 9 weeks I made it down to 199lbs. After that I went up up up and away. It seems every time I look at food I gain weight.
So here I am at the age of 22 Married for 2 years to my best friend and soul mate. Earlier this year we found out we cant get pregnant due to my weight and Poly Cystic Ovaries. This is where my WLS journey began....
