My name is Samantha. People call me Sam. I am very friendly. Extremely extroverted. I have bee around the sun 30 times. I am a girlie girl. I have always like make up and sexy men. I grew up thin my whole life. Unail my twentys. That's when everything changed. I started to gain weight gradually. I was in college. I thought it was the freshmen 15. Although I was kidding myself. It was the freshmen 50. I had a bf who ate and ate with me. Was he my downfall? No. Was he an enabler? yes. I didn't see anything wrong with my weight going from 150 to 200. I was happy. I felt sexy. My family came to visit me and drove right past me though. They didn't recognize me. It was the first time I was really hurt because of my weight. I thought about it on and off for years I'm heavy. no. who cares? actually I'm fat. Stop you still pull guys. So this how it went for years. I would play head games with myself. All while gaining five lbs here three lbs there. Then I received the best gift of my life. I got pregnant. My son is such a blessing. Needless to say I watched what I ate. I did it right I actually lost weight. I was so proud. Until he was born. I wouldn't sleep nursing made me extremely tired and hungry. I always needed something quick. So I gained all the weight back and more. Now upto 250lbs I was with a new man my son's father and we were eating buddies too. When we got divorced I got depressed I ballooned to 265 I guess I just thought I'd loose it when I was ready. Maybe I used it as a safety mechanism to block out all the people who hurt me. Idk. I smoked up and on in life and my career. My son grew. I would finish his plates. Pick while cooking. Eat fast food. I got heavier and heavier. I guess if I ignored it it wasn't a problem. I was in denial. I became lonely so once again I met a gorgeous man who became my husband. He became an eating buddy too. I finally after being with him for 3 yrs got on the scale and realized I broke 300lbs. I remember how awful I felt when my family drove by me. I remember I was 300 lbs. A 100 less!! I wish I could go back to when I thought I was first fat. I made the decision to have wls a month ago. I won't do this anymore. I don't care. I'm sick of it. I need help. I am not in denial anymore. My surgery is scheduled for the second of December. I still do not know what surgery I am having but it has already consumed my thoughts in a few short months. In 8 years I gained a 150 lbs and I'm so embarrassed by that. I will not stand by and do nothing. I am going to change my life. I look foward to sharing my journey with you. And you sharing yours with me as well. I am looking for friends. Confidants. People I can trust. And grow with just not bigger. Better. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
