Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I was always fighting to lose weight. As a young child I was the middle child with an older sister and younger brother. My mother would give me a bag of chips to make me feel better. When I was happy I was eating when I was sad I was eating. By the Sixth grade I was weighing 168 pounds. And being 5'2 it really showed. The summer before Seventh grade my mother and I went to a weight loss doctor. We had the injections (have no idea what it was) and diet pills. That summer I went from 168 to 123. So my Jr High and all of High School I was a normal weight. I met my husband the year before I graduated High School. We were engaged and married in less than a year of meeting.

I would like to say that my story started the day I was born but it didn't. Mama & Daddy brought me home from the hospital weighing a whooping 5lbs 3 ozs. So I wasn't born this way. It didn't take me long to start to fill out my body. Grade School was horrible. Back then it was unusal to have a fat kid in your class. I was always that Fat Kid. In 6th grade age 12 i weighed in at 167 lbs. Not sure of the height but as an adult I'm 5'2 so I couldn't have been very tall. During high school I managed to lose the weight stayed around 125-130. Senior year I got engaged to my Sweet heart and was married shortly after graduation. I guess that was the signal to let all that weight come back. The first year of Marriage I gained 50lbs. I've been up and down for the last 29 years. Having my children and having Thyroid issues hasn't helped with my situation. I'm Still with my High School Sweet heart. He loves me thick or thin. He just wants me healthy. Now I have three Grand babies and I don't want to miss out on seeing them grow up. Its time to get serious about this weight issue. I want it off. I am a Born Again Spirit Filled Christian and I do believe that my Lord Jesus wants me Healthy also. I have him on my side nothing can stop me now that I have made up my mind to do this.
