Oh where do I start? I guess I have really been overweight since middle school. So about 20+ years. I had a really hard time in high school. Called all kinds of names, coming home crying to my mom, never wanting to go to school. I learned to deal with it, but my self confidence really went down the drain. I met my husband when I was 15. We got married when I was 18 and have been married for almost 17 years. We have 2 daughters 14 & 13. I really started packing the weight on after my youngest daughter was born. I hadnt lost the weight from the first child then I got pregnant again, so that didnt help any. I have tried all sorts of diets, Slim Fast, Stacker Pills, 3 day diet, low-carb, low-fat, Weight Watchers. I really done well with Weight Watchers and lost about 50 lbs. I quit going to WW and started packing the weight back on. I put the 50 lbs back on plus more.
I always said that if my insurance would pay for the WLS I would have it done. Well, here I am starting the journey.
