Finally got up the nerve
Sep 19, 2013
After many years thinking about WLS, and trying to lose on my own, I finally got up the nerve to discuss this with my family and my doctor. I have been yo-yo-ing for almost 30 years! Each time I lose, I gain it all and then some more. When I got married, I weighed 206lbs, now I'm at 274lbs.
I am nervous about the whole process, but I'm more worried about my health and what my future will be if I don't get some of this weight off.
I know what I should eat and that I should exercise. The logical side of me still doesn't understand why I cannot succeed at weight loss.
I know that my journey will be long, but I feel that WLS will work for me. It's great to read about other people's journeys. It gives me hope.
