Karen's my name and losing weight is my game. Its a game I haven't won. Started gaining weight since I was 13. I hate it. I don't do well in going to groups in town. The ol' tape playing "Everyones looking at me". I want to be able to go out in public and hold my head up and say "Yeah, you better look at me". LOL I am an emotional eater and have tried to stuff all my feelings. Now I try to deal and head straight for the problem so I can move onto the next task in life.

My Program:
Using my gastric bypass as a tool to losing weight.
I hope to gain help, wisdom and understanding from others on SP. I love water so no problem there. Keep track of my intake of calories. Get off my big'o booty and exercise.

Personal Information:
I am 59 yr young mother of 3 grown daughters. I have 6 grkids-3 boys and 3 girls. I live in Wa State. I like to go camping, fishing, play games and baseball. I don't play ball but my grdaughter does. I have 3 dogs, - 1 aussie & 2 border collies.
I had a gastric bypass in 2003 which I almost died from. Spent 2 months in a hospital and 1 month in a nursing home. The surgery caused my kidneys to shut down so I gained 45 lbs from the fluids and toxins. I started out weighing 415 ended up weighing 460. Like I didn't have enuf to lose anyway. I went thru 8 surgeries in 1 yr. just from that. In May 2004 was my last surgery and my mom passed away 2 wks. later. In Dec. of 2004, my oldest daughter passed away. In Feb. 2005, my husband passed away. Enuf already! Needless to say some of the weight I lost I've gained back due to depression. I am having a rough time getting my feet back on the ground and my mind set to some kind of sanity.

Other Information:
I truly enjoy Sylvia Browne, seen her in 2006
I love to laugh and make others laugh too.
Like being around positive people.
