Topic: RE: Oh So Scared
I've had the same thoughts as you. As you can see from my stats I've been a member of this forum since 2009 but I haven't taken this major step until now. I was scared of having surgery, scared of the pain after surgery, and definitely scared that I would hate how I would look with the saggy skin etc.
But.. I have 4 kids that I want to watch grow up and I also want to be able to play with my grandkids 20 years from now. I want to be healthy. My parents and grandparents ALL are diabetic and have hypertension. I already have hypertension and I don't want to become diabetic. All of this is to say when I did my list of pros and cons my pros outweighed any con I could think of.
Thanks to the support of my husband, my friends, and now the friends I am making here I now look forward to my journey.
