[i][color=#a52a2a][size=4][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]Let me start by saying that I have an incrediable life, I am married to my best friend for the last 23 years and we have raised our kids and we our now in the prime of our lives. We love spending time in the outdoors at our mountain property in Utah and enjoy four wheeling in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. My husband is also into hikingb and would love for me to be able to join him.
I have struggled with weight ever since puberty, I have like I am sure everyone here (so I wont bore with the details of which ones) yo-yo dieted and lost and gained more weight then a sumo wrestler. I will be honest most of the time being over weight has not hindered me or my life until recent years as it has taken a toll on my health. Also, the way and reasons I eat have changed......I used to really enjoy food and get fullfillment from a good meal. Last few years it seems that nothing I eat feels the whole or is fullfilling so I keep stuffing, stuffing, stuffing,....so saying all that I started my research of what I needed to do, sought medical advice, reached out to others, and made an informed decision.
My surgery is scheduled 4/12/13! But I have already started taking weight loss/fitness measures to be prepared. So this is me![/font][/size][/color][/i]
