I have to laugh, as I read so many stories about how people gained weight when they got married. I have been gaining weight since I was 5, about 10 lbs a year. I was a fat kid, school was horrible because kids are mean as hell, I weighed 200 at my prom. Got married at 23, weight 240, and then somehow, I got to 300 over the next 4 years. Wait, then it was 350, then it went higher 4 years ago, when I ended being off work because of a knee injury. After sitting on my behind for 3 1/2 years, I gained another 35-40 lbs. Talk about pissed off at yourself. That was me, I hated everyting, everyone, and didn't want to live any longer. Life sucked for me. I lost my best friend to liver cancer, and I will never be the same again. Nothing looked good to me. Then I decided I didn't have to live like this, there are options. and one that will not make me a failure as I had been on weight watchers, liquid protein only diet, Jenny Craig, Nutri Systems, Adkins, and on and on and on. I made an appt with a doctor I found, read about him and his program, and here I am 5 weeks post op. Took me 2 months to get through a very quick process. No more diabetes pills, no more pills for hypertension, and I am happy. My face shines, my smile is bigger, and right now I am 38 lbs lighter and I will NEVER see that weight again.
I love people, I love talking to people, and making new friends. Ever want to talk, write, I answer!
Good luck to all that read this in their quest for a healthier life
