Oct. 20, 2006 First Post
Well, my story is the same as everyone else. I have been over weight since I was 14 yrs. old. I have tried numerous DIETS that have all failed and then I researched the Bariatric procedure for several yrs. before making my decision to proceed with it. I am the loving wife of an awesome husband (David Clark), the mother of three beautiful God sent children aged 15, 14 and 6. I am the loving care giver of a four legged family member named Ceasar (Bischon Frise dog. I am scheduled for my surgery on Nov. 2, 2006. I am excited and nervous at the same time). My present weight is 292lbs. Believe me I think I carry it well. I did not tell my husband my weight until recently, I was too embarresed to let him know how much weight I had put on. My goal is to reach 165lbs I think that is adequet enough. I do not want to be bone thin, just sexy and healthy. So this is my story. I welcome all who would like to take this journey with me to email me and add me to your friendship list as well as to your prayers.God Bless everyone going through or all ready have gone through what I am about to go through.
Oct. 23, 2006 Today I am reflecting on my past eating habits, I am so embarresed about the way I let myself go. But, that thought was only for a minute because I then began to think of Nov. 2 the day of my rebirth fastly approaching. I stopped by to see an old friend and she was excited to hear about my good news and she also said that I had lost some weight since she last saw me. That made me feel good. I talked with my PT and he said that once the weight begins to come off I will be able to feel the difference in my pain level on my lower back and my knees. My body is tired of carring this excess weight around.
