I've been overweight all my life. Although, at times I was not as big as I thought I was. In high school I remember
being around 160 and feeling so huge. Now, I know that I should have learned then how to eat right and move right
in order to keep from being even more overweight. College life was fun and I made some really great life long friends who
I still see yearly or more. In fact we go to the beach together each summer. I remember feeling I was the largest one
there during my college days, I think I was between 160-180 then. Now I look at pictures of myself then and wish I
was that size. Married life followed shortly after college and I was a proud size 18 bride. I guess being married really
made me fat because I remember clothes I bought for my honeymoon not fitting about a month after my honeymoon.
When I was pregnant with my first child I gained about 70 pounds and did not lose much of it after. I did go to Physicians
Weight Loss about 2 years later before I had my second child and lost about 40 lbs. Then I regained it all back and more
with my second pregnancy. From there my weight seemed to just ease up to around 270. I would lose 10 or 20 each year
beginning in January only to regain it all back by December. This December my weight crept up close to 300 and I decided
I had to make a life change. I attended a WLS seminar thinking I would like to do a LapBand. That is where I learned about
the VSG and started researching it. Because I did not want the issues of dealing with the port and adjustments of the band
I decided on VSG. I feel confident about my decision, even though sometimes I wonder if I'll ever "miss" eating until my
plate is empty. I come back here and read time and time again about those who have had the surgery and say it is the best
decision of their lives. In about 15 days I'll begin the journey. Praying I'll be joining others in saying it is the best decision
of my life.
