I have been overweight my entire life.  I have tried all kinds of weight loss diets and tricks.  I have tried just diet and exercise, and sometimes I was successful.  But only temporarily.  Something always happened or I got tired of the restrictions, so I gained weight back - childbearing, surgeries, stress, depression, and basically not caring and eating cause it was there.  Now, I have older children (youngest is 9), a new wonderful husband, a good job, and I am happy, except I am still morbidly obese and have health problems.  I want that to end.  2010 is my year.  I am going to make a permanent change in my life so I can lose weight and keep it off no matter if I remain happy or not; whether or not I am sick or not; whether I am stressed or not.  This surgery will make me permanently aware of what I am eating and my weight.  I am doing this for me first and everyone else second.It is time for me!
