I am a 52yo married with a 21yo daughter. I have struggled with weight since i was 8yo. I joined WW for the first time at 10yo. My mother would bring me to meetings. I know she meant well . There were times i was thin. Thin for me was stil 40 to 50 pounds overweight. That began my life of yo yo dieting.
It was hard growing up with everyone else in the family of normal weight. I would have to go the chubbet department. That's what is was call when i was a kid. Although for way back when the outfits were pretty stylish. While my tiny younger sister could go to the kids department. Plus my brother was underweight. But we did have a great childhood together even to this day we are very close. But I am still fat.
There were time when i did lose weight. when I started high school I weighed about 140. by the time I graduated I weighed around 200. Would fluctuate between 200 and 240. When I would get to 240 I would diet back to200.
By the time I married I weighed 250 and that is when the weigh started to get out of control. Without even realizing it I hit 300lbs. My husband is wonderful he loves me no matter what size I am. He never said your gaining weight.
I have never been able to ride a amusement park ride with my daughter. Except for Disney world very size friendly. We like to do a lot of family outing but I started to get embarrassed to go because of my weight.
This past year I almost lost my Dh to illness. I thank god everyday for his survival. This is when I started to think about WLS. While he as sick and The drs could not tell me if he would survive. I kept thinking about my daughter. She was about to turn 21. A birthday she was so looking forward to. I kept thinking about her how will she handle this. And if I didn't start to do something she could be alone. I know I am a heart attack waiting to happen. When my Dh came home and he was feeling better. I had along talk with them. They are scared about it but both said they will support my decision. I am thankful for them.
Some of my family lives out of state. I called my Mother She is supporting my decisions. I had a great conversation with my sister and my brother. My sister is hoping to come home for a visit next year. we are so excited about it. I said wow next time you see me I will be skinny.lol
There are 2 programs in my area. I had gone to one seminar. Now waiting for the second seminar. So I can meet both Doctors and see which one I feel more comfortable with. I am so ready to be healthier and yes thinner. I have always been a girlie girl I love ruffles and lace wearing dresses and heels. But since I am so heavy right now nothing fits or looks good on me. I have bins full of clothes that are waiting to be worn,
