I've been overweight since puberty hit. The weight has done a yo-yo over the years. I've never been successful long term at losing the weight. Now I'm at my highest, the reality of other problems of obesity are starting to gather and it's time to change.
I was one for years who said I'd never have WLS. I didn't believe in cutting my system all up. But then you take a good long look at whats true in your life. High blood pressure, sleep apnea, and the potential for many more.
I made a few lists. One of how I spend my days activity wise. TV, reading, not going out. Then I listed all of the ways my body limits me, out of breath, fitting in airline seats, not being able to ask for a booth at a restaurant. Now came the dream list, what would I actually do without the limitations. It was difficult to think beyond the body limits. But what a freeing exercise. That was the point I began to seriously think about WLS.
The journey excites and scares me. Now I know it's a perfectly normal feeling. Thanks to reading through profiles and posts. My deepest appreciation to those who share.
