Well I have been overweight since the birth of my second son.....I was never a skinny one mind you, but after he was born I seemed to pile on the weight. It was always another 10 lbs. never looked at the total, just another 10 lbs. When my youngest son was 3 and my oldest 5, their father walked out on us, at Christmas to boot. He went straight to another woman, a co worker and believe me that was hard to take. Well I think I sunk further into a depression and tried to eat my way out of it. I figured if he didn't want me then I wasn't worth much. After about 3 yrs I began to feel that I wanted more out of life, so I went back to university and got my degree. Changed jobs, am now doing what I love and am back in school. Oh a sideline to this, he married the girl, I was on my own for 18 yrs and you know what? that was a good thing, because I got to know me, and my sons and I enjoyed each other. Well they are grown up, I remarried 2 yrs ago to a wonderful guy who loves me the way I am....funny thing though, even though I went back to school, am working at a job that I love, I wasn't satisfied. I am a type 2 diabetic and my doctor finally suggested surgery. I wonder what took him so long! A friend that I met along the way Mellie introduced me to this site and my journey began. With the help of my doctor, his referral to Dr. Klein, and this amazing site full of caring people, I researched and researched to determine what I thought was best for me. Dr. Klein agreed, now I have my date, minus a few thousand dollars, but I am on my way to fulfilling my dream. I am currently on 11 pills a day due to the complications with diabetes, I want off them all!!! My oldest son is now 23, getting married in 2008 and I want to be drug free and a better, healthier me!
I am on my way! Thanks Mellie, love ya lots for all your support, thanks to everyone here for their encouragement and support, you are all the best. Thanks to my mom, hubby and kids for loving me always and to Dr. Martin Young in the big village (laughing) of Fenelon Falls, Ontario Canada for always being there to help and encourage me....I wouldn't be on the threshold of this great adventure without any of you.
