My story is pretty short. I've been overweight my entire life and I'm sick of it. My body hurts. I am completely convinced I'm a skinny person trapped in a fat body!! In March of last year I rushed my dad to the hospital while he was in the process of having a heart attack and I just knew that that was going to be me someday. I turned 30 on May 10, 2007, and decided my next 30 years I would NOT be fat and that I needed to seriously work on my health. I've tried many things to lose this extra weight and nothing seems to work. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, endometriosis, hypothyroidism, mild sleep apnea, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, and a serious family history of heart disease on my father's side. In 2003 I had my thyroid removed due to a nodule that was growing on it. (Turns out my thyroid had cancer, but the nodule was completely benign.) I was fat before that, but ever since that I've kept gaining weight steadily no matter what I do. I can starve myself and not lose any. I am WAY TOO YOUNG to have all of this crap going on. Well, that is all about to change. Hopefully this surgery is the answer to my prayers. I know this is a life-changing event and that's exactly what I need. I also know this surgery is just a tool and it's up to me to make the best of it. I'm so hoping that "30 is the new 20"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wish Me Luck.......
