My story is like most everyone, I have been over weight my whole life. I managed to stay a chubby normal until I was 26 years old with lots of exercise and trying every diet I heard of. Then after a car accident I stedily gained, through my marriage and having my two beautiful kids.
Gastric bypass was first recomended to me by a Doctor when he diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. At the time it was something scary and foreign. By the time I wanted to pursue the surgery I didn't have an insurance that would cover it. I have watched many family members have it and been sucessful, including my husbands very expensive cash pay.
Now it is my turn, I'm very excited to be waiting for approval. I am excited about following the rules and reaching my goal of a normal nonobese weight. I have been mentally working toward this, learning new ways to deal with my emotions and stresses of life without overeating. And have lost 45 pounds.
I want to she my children growup, and have families, my baby is only three. We have lots of camping and playing to do and I am hoping for some relief from crohnic pain, high blood pressure and every other side effect of being morbidly obese.
On the vain side....I want to ride with my husband on his Harley that I wouldn't even try at my top weight of 392 lbs. A BETTER LIFE.....HERE I COME :0)
