I am like most others on this site. I have been overweight all of my life. I think my love of food started when I was about 3 or 4. If it wasn't something that I liked to eat, I would say no and wouldn't eat it. But most of the time, I would eat. I rollercoasted through the teenage years with yo-yo dieting. I did the Jenny Craig, Diet Center, and Weight Watchers. I would lose and gain and it has been that way most of my life. I am what you call an emotional eater and the food that I eat becomes my friend. If that makes sense. I realized that my health wasn't going to get better the way I was going and decided to start investigating WLS after my primary Doctor and I talked one day. He supposts me having WLS and the staff in his office have been really supportive  in my making this decision.
