I have a surgury date set in January 2018. It is fast approaching. I have been overweight basically my entire life. Dealing with my mental disorders has been a big obstacle in my life. I believe that this, or a major part, is the reason for my failure to maintain a healthy weight. I've been going to appointments with my surgeon since last June. I am only 22 years old, and I am starting to realize the severity of this procedure. I chose to get the sleeve but Im having a hard time wrapping my head around what this will mean years later. I dont what to regret this decision. Ive always had trouble with sticking to a fitness plan or healthy eating plan.
Other than that, Im thinking I should push the surgury date to the summer because of the recovery time, the start of the spring semester and time to try non surgicle methods before I commit. Ill admit it, I am SCARED! I know what will happen physically to my body but Im unsure how my mind will cope.
This is one of my struggles

first post and gonna see how it goes.
I am a design major student. I commute to school (about 12 min not during rush hour) but I share a studio with 16 other students. I have access to this room 24/7. I end up spending a ton of time at my computer (which has to stay at my desk). I have access to a mini fridge, tiny microwave and my keurig. I've had a hard time eating healthy. I end up eating a lot of cereal and easy mac. This is due to my laziness and lack of knowledge of easy yet healthy food.
this has been one of my struggles.
