I grew up as a tall but not fat little girl.  My weight problem started after my first son was born and I just never fully lost all the weight I had gained.  I went for many years with just that little bit of overweight on my body but as the years passed I put more on.  I'm a great cook and love to eat what I prepare..so that was a problem for me plus the fact that I was married to a man who loved my cooking and I had three sons who devoured everything but the kitchen sink.  None of them are overweight.  About two years ago my obesity started causing me a lot of other problems, diabetes, cholostrol, high BP....I have arthritis.  I was really becomming a sick, obese woman and that's why I'm here.  My sister had the RNY last year and looks gorgeous and has no problems so that prompted me to think about it for myself.  My husband and I love to travel, sing and participate in our Church and I'm thrilled to know that I will be able to do much more of the things I love once I have gotten my weight under control.  Yippeeeee
