My story is very simple...a few years ago, I began to put on a good bit of weight...it caused me a lot of pain and health problems...towards the end of 2005, I was diagnosed with IBS and I ended up losing about 100 lbs. because of being so sick from the IBS...while I did feel better, I know it wasn't a very good way to lose weight but I couldn't help that...I did eventually decide to look into a breast reduction surgery because I had not lost any weight in that area and, even now, continued to have severe back problems from all the weight I had gained in the past...the doctor told me he would like for me to be at or under 200 lbs. and suggested I look into a stomach stapling or lap band surgery...I tried for a bit to do it alone but my motivation wavers a lot...I seem to be at a real stand still and am quite frustrated...I've decided it's time to start taking the necessary steps to change things instead of waiting for them to come to me.
