So here is my story......
As soon as I told her I wanted to have the gastric, she totally freaked and advised that she was not comfortable with me altering my anatomy. My response...it is my body.. My decision to live with! She told me she wanted me to wait, try medication, diet, and exercise first. As though I had not does this in the past!!!!!
I first lost weight during liquid diets... Did this for years after college to try and "maintain" my weight. Not at all bright
I use to work out for 2 to 3 hours a day. Sometimes I would even work out at night as well. My life has changed now. I have other obligations that prevent me from spending so much time in the gym. Also...at 265 lbs, it hurts just to walk up a flight of stairs. I work for one of the leading Sporting Companies and I am embarrassed to walk to meeting with co-workers, either I can't keep up at the same pace or they decide to take the stairs, by the time I reach the floor we need to get to I am breathing so hard, I need a few minutes to get myself together before the meeting starts. The other say at work I was looking at ObesityHelp and a coworker came over and saw the page up on my desk. She went into a rant about how surgery was just soooo unnecessary and all I really need to do was to change my eating and exercise. She being all of a size 6 at the most!. Then had the audacity to tell me when she had her baby she gain 15 whole pounds and she dedicated herself and lost the weight. I told her when she was carrying around an extra person, 2 teenagers, or about 6 toddlers in weight I would be willing to listen to any diet advice she had, but until that time her point of view was pretty much worthless in my world!
I did some research and with the support of a co-worker (who has already had the surgery), and my sister, who also did the surgery, decided to get a new PCP and I meet with her on the 23rd of this month.
This time I am going to stay focused…This time I am not giving up.
