Since i was 4 years old ive been considered obese. Im now 21 soon to be 22 in March. Growing up i was the most active kid in the neighborhood, but for some reason i was always the biggest. I've decided to get the gastric sleeve after talking to my surgeon about the lap band. I thought the lap band would be the best option for me, but come to find it comes with too many problems. Im excited but still somewhat scared to have the gastric sleeve. Since i am 21, most of my friends still like to go out drinking and soon i will not be able to drink with them. Im afriad that most my friends will fall off the face of the earth once i have the surgery or ill end up being everyones dd for the evening. I'm really hoping this will not happen.
Im not having the surgery to be skinny like most people think. It's all about being healthy for me. I want to be a special education teacher when im done with college and i want to be able to keep up with them. I also want more self confidence. i always feel like the odd ball out since everyone i know is pretty much skinny. i used to compare myself to the other girls my age and get so upset because i did not look like them. I've gotten over this the past few years but im still ready for a change. In middle school i was diagnosed with PCOS. Having PCOS sucks. All the side effects that go along with it suck. I'm hoping the surgery gets rid of them. I also want to get rid of the feeling of ALWAYS being hungary. It seems like no matter what i eat of normal portions im still always hungary.
After my surgery, i want to train for a marathon. I want to be happy. i want to have children. i want to show people the real me. i dont want my thighs to touch anymore lol. i want to go skydiving or even bungee jumping. But most of all i want to be HEALTHY!
