Too Fat to Donate?

So, today I went to register to be a bone marrow donor and was told I did not meet the weight requirements.   That is a complete bummer to me.  My friend, Stephanie died of Leukemia in 2005.  My wonderful stepson lost his mother from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006 being on the list is something that is very important to me.   I guess this is another reason for me to lose the weight!

I am not fat, I am just enlarged to show detail!

Went to meet with the surgeon yesterday.  SURPRISE! SURPRISE! My weight qualifies me for the lapband surgery!  Duh, doc! So, why did I have to pay you $25 to tell me what I already knew.  I know I am a candidate and I know I want it done.  So, now what??  Off, to pay a pyschologist to tell me once again I am qualified, thats another $75 just to hear I am fat! Geez, my wallet is thanking you! Seriously, no wonder the world is overweight! No one can afford to be skinny! You have to pay to out of your tail to get healthy food and you have to pay to hear from the doctor that you have to lose weight.  Oh well, I guess my savings will come when I can leave the plus size section and shop the clearance racks at normal stores!  Watch out world, I am going to do this!

Introductory Post

I guess my first post should be an introduction of myself.  My name is Katie.  I am 25 years old.  I got married July 31st and have a 6 year old stepson.  I also am morbidly obese.  Yes, I said it OBESE.  The picture below is of me all 375 lbs (yah its crazy I know), my extremely handsome stepson and my sexy husband!  I love my "curves" and so does my hubby.  But, when it starts to affect your health then its time to do something about it.  I have gotten to the point where my chest is constantly hurting either from my acid reflux disease or my asthma.  I had neither of these conditions a few years ago. 

So, you may say "oh, you want to lose weight so just go on a diet."  Let me tell you, name a diet and I have done it.  The problem with diets are they don't last.  Sure, I've lost 20lbs here and there "dieting" just to turn around and gain 40 after giving in to the temptations of food.  Oh how tempting food can be.  There is nothing like a good old fashioned home cooked meal.  Another problem of mine is that I LOVE to cook and am kind of obsessed with baking.   My dream is to one day own a bakery.  I am always trying new recipes.  Baking is a passion of mine.  How can I lose weight when I love food so much?  It is not going to be an easy journey, but it is one that I am preparing myself to embark on.
