I was overweight most of adolescence until junior year of high school when I got a job at burger king and the smell of food made me sick. I went from a 18 to an 8 in about a year. I then went to college and kept the weight off until I turned 19. One month past my 19th birthday I was ejected from a car onto the roof of a house, i then rolled to the ground. In this accident I cracked all of my ribs, broke my pelvis, cracked all my vertebrae crushing 3, and lacerated my spleen. I was paralyzed for I guess about 18 hours. I walked out of the hospital a week later. I was not able to be very mobile and over the next 2 years i gained around 75 pounds. 2 months before my 21st birthday I had back surgery where they removed a rib and collapsed a lung. The surgery failed and one week later i had to have it repaired. I continued to gain weight while doing everything i could to lose it. I decided the best option was surgery and decided to have it 2 days before my 27th birthday. I take everyday with new perspective. I am so glad I made this decision, I know that i see the world and it sees me.
