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.
