I have not always been obese.  I grew up a very slim child and young adult. After getting married and trying for our first child I was diagnosed with PCOS,, it took us 3 yrs to get our first.. since we have had 3 kids.  With every pregnancy I started putting on the weight,, not loosing it and gaining more.  (know matter what I tried excersice+diet)  In the last 2 years I have had a major decline in health.  I can trace it all back to weight gain.  I have PCOS, really high blood pressure, high Triglycerines, questionable diebetes tests.  A year ago I fell and injured my back.  IT has made this past year very difficult.  I have been on steriods for it twice, vicoden and muscle relaxers.. its not a good way to live.  Due to weight just messing, (playing ball, swimming, playing chase with kids) the extra belly bounce will throw my back out once I think its healed.  I have been miserable.  Sadly the fact of me loosing the weight would help things drastically.  The icing that pushed me towards the procedure was,,, I had kidney stones and went to the ER.  The did a full belly ultra found and diagnosed me with a Diffused FAtty liver. My very fit (and good looking) ER doctor told me if I did not reverse this result that was due to weight I only had max 10yrs left.  Thinking of my kids it was to difficult to think of them without a mother.  Thats when I decided for once I need to think of my health first.  I am scared yet excited to say that my procedure date is July 28,2009.  Being on the post op diet I have lost 10lbs!!!!!
