Well my struggle with my weight began after a trip to visit my grandmother in Alabama when I was 5. I came home 20 lbs heavier, and have been overweight ever since. I was aways one of the heavier girls in my class growing up, but I was never teased, I was always very shy, and internalized most of my feelings. I did very well in high school, but missed out on my Junior and Senior Prom, because of my weight, and lack of a date. That bothered me a little, but I quickly got over that, because of my excitement about attending college. As I entered my senior year in colege I realized how large I was, and that I wanted to live a healthier life. I entered into my first weight loss program and lost 70 lbs on my own. It was a great feeling, even though I did not reach my goal weight. Slowly over the years I tried several more programs, and the weight wouldnt stay off. I am now 34, and realizing that I want a lifetime change, and that VSG is this best choice for me. So here I am, awaiting approval from my insurance company. And looking forward to the best years of my life that are still to come!
