I have been overweight about half of my life. I was always what you might call solid, so even when I was in small size clothing my weight was above average. I really started getting to an unhealthy weight in high school and have been unable to get it off ever since. I really want to be able to have the energy to play with my kids and be an active parent which is the main reason for me to get the surgery. I have my first seminar meeting on October 25, 10 and can hardly wait for it to get here. Took 2 months to get a referral because my doctor doesn't believe in having weight loss surgery so I had to get a new doctor and he was booked for weeks! At least I am finally getting started. My dad had the gastric bypass and lost 100lbs the first year but did not follow the rules or attend any support groups so he gained it back. I understand that this means I have to change my way of living permanantly in order get and maintain results so I feel confident that I will have greater success than he did.
