[color=#800080][font='comic sans ms', cursive] I am just a plain ole mom who has not only a family history of obesity, but a long family line of diseases & conditions that are attributed to obesity. Luckily as of yet I don't really have any major issues, a few minor ones. After a long discussion with a few friends & failing [/font][/color][font="comic sans ms, cursive"][color="#800080"]miserably on numerous diets. I have decided to seek out a more drastic step into getting my life back. I know that this is not a magic end all be all, I know this will take lots of hard work & probably lots of tears. lets face it, I have already been doing those already. I am doing the VSG surgery.[/color][/font]
[font="comic sans ms, cursive"][color="#800080"] I have also have a hard time in pulling my self away from food, I seem to be a emotional eater. For the past few years my weight just keeps rising. This past New Years Eve, I decided this is the year I take my life back. In one month exactly it will be the first anniversary of my mom's passing. I helped her for a few years prior to this after she got Breast Cancer, & ultimately as a result of Radiation treatment she got Leukemia. She was the last parent I had left. I ate a lot... during this time. (My Dad passed away in 1998 after suffering from a MAJOR Stroke he held on for 13 years.) These are all my learning tools & now I need to make the best choices I can make.[/color][/font]
[font="comic sans ms, cursive"][color="#800080"] [/color][/font][color=#800080][font='comic sans ms', cursive]Any way on top of my family misfortunes, I want to be able to enjoy family time & vacations with my kids, whether it something as simple as a hike, a swimming pool, going out to eat or the worst an amusement park. I'm sure everyone can [/font][/color][font="comic sans ms, cursive"][color="#800080"]empathize or relate. Now it's time to put one foot in front of the other & Carry On! [/color][/font]
