My mom brought me to my first weight watchers meeting at 12 years old in Toronto, CA.  I remember having a sleepover a few days after and eating carrot sticks while the other girls ate cookies. I’ve lost 70-80lbs at least 3 or 4 times on weight watchers throughout my adult life.  3 years ago and about 60lbs lighter I had a massive panic attack which put me into constant anxiety for about a month straight.  Couldn’t eat and didn’t want to leave the house.  Once I conquered my anxiety (through treatment and therapy) I swore I would never beat myself up over eating so I didn’t. 
Since then I’ve gained 70lbs.  I’m a happy person and except for a few skin issues pretty much healthy but I’m back in my “fat cocoon”.  A cocoon that although comforting and safe is keeping me from all the things I could do, I could be.  There is a saying in Overeaters Anonymous that says: “I came for the vanity and stayed for the sanity”.  I’d like to be sane when it comes to food.  I’d like to be at a weight that allows me to do the things I’d like to do and not be obsessed with the next meal.
Oct 2014 found out my insurance would cover my surgery.  Had to do 6 months supervised diet.   Stressed myself for 6 months about not losing weight, if the ins would approve etc.  Submitted my paperwork in March and was approved in 48hrs.  I hugged my coworkers I was so excited.  Surgery Date: 5/21/2015.  The beginning of a new chapter!
