I began the process of WLS in mid March 06. I received my approval letter on June 17. I am now waiting for a call to schedule an Orientation mtg. I was a very active child/teen. I gained a lot of weight with 2 pregnancies, while my husband was away in the Navy. Food became my comfort and my friend when I was so lonely and alone. I developed habits that were never part of my life previously, Overeating to compensate for lonliness and no activity to speak of. Here I am now nearly 36 yrs later and a thousand pounds lost and regained, searching for my life back. I now have four grandsons and I am waiting for a granddaughter from my baby boy who is still in college at this time. (He's not married yet)
I love to knit and to read and do all sorts of crafts. I am a christian and believe fervently in prayer.
I am so looking forward to meeting some of you out there. I live in Modesto and would welcome a pal or two. Most of my close friends live out of state. I love this site and lurk every day and sometimes respond to others. I get a lot of info and encouragement from everyone. Thanks, Denise--On Angel Wings
Just an update, since I finally figured this out,(puter challenged) Anyway, I had my surgeon's consult on Thursday and I am so stoked!!
Dr. Chu will be my surgeon and I was really impressed with her. I told her I wanted to have the surgery in Oct and she said okay, just need to get the remaining wt off. I have lost a total of 15 lbs. I have 8 lbs to lose to get my psych eval set up and 5 more from there to get the surgery scheduled. I have been working out regularly, water aerobics and walking too. I feel so much better and I am not hungry at all. I have to say I am pretty surprised. I am becoming more confident that I can accomplich this in the time I have. Dr. Chu is leaving in Dec for maternity leave, so that is quite a motivation. I don't want to have to wait until she gets back. I know...I can do all thing in Christ who gives me strength!!TTFN
