My name is Kerrie-Lea and I am from Port Pirie in SA.
I am new on here and just looked you up. I am going to see my doctor next week to get a referral for Gastric Sleeve Op.
My main issues (apart from my weight) is I have type 2 diabetes, on insulin that I cannot control very well. I have high cholesterol and depression and I love to eat....
I have decided that I need to have a Gastric Sleeve because I have been overweight my whole life since puberty and even though I have lost weight a few times during my life I have always got to a place that I cannot loose anymore weight so one of 2 things always happens - 1 I get an injury and cannot train anymore so I give up and eat., or 2 I cannot lose anymore weight so my depression kicks in and I eat.
I will be 50 in 2 years and feel that as my husband and I consider retiring and travelling I want to get my health under control so can enjoy my twilight years.
I know my husband loves me but I feel that I cannot bring this up to him until I see my doctor and get his referral - is this crazy - I just feel I have given my hubby enough promises during our lives together that he my be dubious about my decision. I am not sure.
Anyway this is me and - Hello to you all I hope ot make some great friends on here and cannot wait to read all your stories.
