Hello guys...I did not do a very good job of telling my story from the beginning.  So I'll go back a little.  In 2004 I gave birth to my little girl.  During that pregnancy, I literally "ate for two".  I gained 66 pounds with that pregnancy.  After she was born, the weight did not come off, and then we got pregnant again.  By the end of 2007, I had gotten to about 270 pounds and was miserable.  I have an amazing husband, two beautiful children, a great career, and I'm very involved with my church and I love the Lord with all my heart.  But my weight was killing me.  My feet, knees, hips, and back hurt ALL the time, I was diagnosed with clinical depression, started on medication, and was really at my wit's end.  I had my gastric bypass surgery on April 14, 2008 and have never looked back.  As I write this, I am 3 and a half months out, and I've lost 67 or 68 pounds.  I feel SO much better.  This decision is truly life changing.
