Well where do I start? My name is Lesa Duncan and I am 47 years old. I have been overweight since I was about 17 when I got married to the man I love. We have been married for 30 years and he has stuck with mje through thick and thin you might say. I have fought this weight all of my life it seems, I have done tops, Weight Watchers more times than I care to think about, Jenny Craig, and many more. I have many weight related illnesses and the thing that made me decide on weight loss surgery happened last year. I had lost 90 pounds at Weight Watchers in 2000 and had kept gaining it back a little at a time. Well last year I had reached back up to my highest weight of 290 and I joined Jenny Craig. I did well and lost 35 pounds in 5 months, I walked 3 miles per day and was doing well. Suddenly my knee started to hurt and I went to an orthapedic surgeon when it kept getting worse and worse. The surgeon xrayed it and decided I had a stress fracture. I had fractured my knee somehow, I coujld no longer walk or work out,. I started to regain immediately I got depressed once again and slowly creeped up to 290 once again. I lay in bed last april and decided that I had no other choice but to do something about this once and for all. I decided that night to have weight loss surgery. I asked my husband the next day what he thought and he said he would support me with whatever I decided to do. I started the process with Bluegrass Bariatrics in Georgetown immediately. I now have a date for surgery for February 5, 2007. It has been a long 7 months coming and I am feeling so many things, Anxiousness to have this all behind me and be on the healing side is of utmost desire.
