Research, Research, Research.... =)

Jan 10, 2012

As you can see I am in the "research/consideration" phase.  I am trying to learn as much as I can about WLS options and about each one.  I had originally wanted to do the band... but not sure now until I do more research.  I am not even completely sure that WLS is the choice I will make.  But seeing that I have had no success at losing weight in the past 8 years, despite very strong efforts to,  I am now maybe considering WLS.  Particularly because I have had several health issues rear their ugly heads the last couple of years due to my weight...and then in the past couple of months there have been some really bad turns in my health that were eye opening.  And I see now that  it is IMPERATIVE that I lose this weight once and for all!!!  So, here I am.  

I am a 36 year old stay at home mother of two.  I enjoy homeschooling my kiddos and spending time with them and my husband and all things family.  I love the Lord and feel blessed for each day I am given and to have so many wonderful people in my life.  I want to live my life stronger and to the fullest and fullfil God's will in my life and enjoy my kids and eventually grandkids someday.... I don't want to keep feeling old before my time, with no energy, sick, tired, depressed, and limited in what I can do physically...  and to be held back not only physically, but mentally and emotionally because of my weight.  It has greatly affected me and every area of my life.  And I am so ready to be done with it and be healthy again and live my life again.  

I don't know much about WLS but I intend to know more each day than the day before and make an informed decision... and let God lead me and guide me in His will for me... if that is surgery great.  If it is not that is great.  Exercise and healthy eating will be a part of my lifestyle changes regardless.  I hope everyone has great success on the weightloss journey here.  May God Bless you abundantly!
