So I am an overweight 38 year old mother of 3. I have pretty much been overweight since around the age of 10 or 11. I've tried diets and all that fun stuff and nothing worked for me. I am addicted to food and I love to eat.
Last August my doctor asked me if I would consider weight loss surgery. I didn't even think about it I just said yes. He referred me to the Adirondak Health Center to a Seminar w/ Dr. Hill. I automatically new from that day I was going to start working on my goal of WLS. I have been to all my appointments and I am so close to being able to summit my paperwork to the Insurance and if approved get my date. I am very excited.
I want to lose weight for me. I am tired of being miserable in my body. I hate that it hurts to walk down the street. I have already started being mindful of what I eat. I quit smoking the next week after the seminar, and I'm down to one to two sodas a week.
I saw the psych the other day and told me about this site where I could get support and give support and make friends to help me on my journey. There is a lot I know and a lot I do not know and I am looking forward to meeting new friends.
