HI-(my tagname, is leosmimi-Leo is my 2 1/2 yr old adorable grandson-and he calls me MIMI)but my name is Kathy, im 43 years old and have 3 (practically grown) children-daughter-23yrs,2sons-... now the greatest gift LEO!
Like alot of you, i have had to deal with being overweight my entire life. I always saw myself as being overweight, Started Weight Watchers back in grade school, and joined and rejoined(all the wgt loss grps) a million times over the years. After i got married, and was pregnant, i remember weighin close to what i weigh now (155),but didnt lose it, instead kept goin up from there, so by the time i had my other 2 kids, i got up to my highest close to 300(and im only 5ft tall)the weight restricted me from alot,my self esteem was at an all time low!For 2 years i thought about, and researched Gastric Bypass surgery. Talked to dr, family, friends, and Yes decided to go ahead. May 27, 2005 -ihad the surgery.Everyday i lost weight effortlessly, following the diet set up by the drs. When I went back to work , i went from being a very shy person to a very social person, i was happy with myself-i was able to be who i was meant to be without the weight holding me back!
In 2010, i ended up bein in the hospital for 2 wks, and am currently still out on disability, this maybe a domino effect of the gastric bypass,6 surgerys in 2 yr-many stomach issues, However i dont regret it. i have put on extra weight since jan, and i no my 30lbs to lose is nothing in comparision to other people, however, ive been there-so i can support&be supported in the same way, i no 1st hand being overweight is still a tolerated prejudice in this world- i personally hate it! i hope we all have good luck ,and its not just our bodys that needs to change but our heads too!
