Hello everyone! My name is Robin I am a 30 yr. old fat "Lunch Lady"! I have dealt with being overweight all my life. I was put on phen phen when I was in junior high along with my mother who has dealt with weight issues all her life. Been to weight watchers, doing the no carbs, doing the slim fast drinks. Just to lose a few pounds and gain back a few more. Recently I have reached my all time high and am very unhappy in my own skin. I have two beautiful children a daughter that is 10 and a son that is 6 they are the light of my life and one of the main reasons I have to lead a healthier life. I want to be there to see my grandchildren someday! But for know I would be happy to get on a bike or rollerblades with them. Or to take the sled and go sledding with them. All the wonderful things I did as a child by myself because my parents weren't healthy enough to do with me and my brother. A little over 4 years ago I was divorced from my husband and he told me he would never have another "fat" lady in his life! Besides the fact that his cheating resulted in our marriage ending he blamed me for everything that went wrong and I believe that is when my self esteem hit an all time low. I lost my best friends because my husband was sleeping with not one of them but all of them! To this day I don't have many friends due to the trust issue and the fact that I go to work and come straight home finding excuses not to go out and be social with anyone. The life I lead I feel I should be leading when I am to old to get out and be active not at 30! Ok I don't know how much of this made since but want to introduce myself.
I have been going through the insurance hoops since June. I have BCBS of MN and they require me to do 6 months of diet plan with supervision, psych eval., have a BMI over 40 or 35-450 with other issues. Completed the 6 months CHECK, psych eval CHECK, BMI over 40 CHECK! My paperwork is in for approval for RNY with Dr. Smith in Park Rapids, MN. I hope to hear this week that I get approved! Crossing my fingers! Looking forward to joining the losers bench!
