My name is Tammy and I am 39 years old... will be 40 in September. I am married to the most wonderful man in the world! He is in the Army and we are stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. I have been overweight most all of my life...well since the age of 8 or 9. I was diagnosed in 1996 with diabetes and have been on and off insulin over the years. I am now on 2 types of insulin and take an average of 5 shots a day. I am on high bloodpressure meds. and cholesterol meds as well. I have never considered having WLS because people always told me that I would not qualify because I was not big enough... I don't know who they were looking at!!! I am 6' tall but I am 266 pounds and I am miserable and I have always felt this way... I have tried every diet that I could find, I would lose 20 pounds at the most and it always came back!!! I have now decided to have Gastric Bypass surgery and I am really excited!!! I am on the list and should be getting a date soon!!! They said be ready for a date in July 2011 and I am more than ready!! I want to feel better and look better, I have always felt like a thin girl in a huge body... I have always felt restricted because of my weight. I am so ready for this journey!!! I have talked to many people and went to group meetings and this is what I want to do!!! Yay!!!
