[font='lucida sans unicode']My Name is Katarina, I'm 26 years old from Minneapolis, Minnesota and I have been overweight my whole life. Despite the weight, I've always had very high self esteem and tons of confidence. I've never felt "held back" because of my weight until more recently. I feel I have lost control of my body and can use WLS as a tool to get back on track. I found BariatricPal just by doing a search on google. I was primarily looking for a forum where I could feel comfortable asking questions; primarily being with a group of people who have gone through/are going through what I am. [/font]

[font='lucida sans unicode']I actually started my WLS journey March of 2013; I was declined in my psych evaluation because it was determined I was a binge eater. From there I went through an eating disorder program which was 16 weeks, and had to be 6 months binge free before entering back into the WLS program. I had my second round of "first appointments" April 2014 and have been moving forward since then![/font]

[font='lucida sans unicode']I am looking forward to not being alone in this journey and using the stories of others to stay motivated and focus on my goal of a healthier and happier life style. [/font]

[font='lucida sans unicode']Cheers to new beginnings! [/font]
