I have been a big girl all my life. I was small for a very short period of time when I had my children. After my hysteroctomy I gained it all back. So I know what it's like to be both small and large. I have been studing this surgery for the past 3 years. I have finially made up my mind to do this since being told I have fatty liver disease. They said that if I don't loose weight that it could very well kill me. I have children and I want to see them graduate and have my grand kids. I want to live life. My husband is in the Army. I want to be fit and healthy like him. I want so much to be able to run 2 miles with him. I want to go to the military balls and be able to wear pretty ball gowns. I want to be able to wear pretty cloths, not just buy them because they fit. I am so tired of being fat!!!! I have tried just about every weight loss product and diet on the market. None of them worked and if they did then they worked and then I would gain the wieght back that I lost then some. I have HTN, hypothyriodism, sleep apena, depression, GERD, and that just is a few. I take a total of 6 pills a day plus I have to take a sleeping pill due to insominia. I want to get off of all these pills and be healthy. Everyone tells me not to do it just beacuse I think I will look better. That is not the reason I am doing this. I am doing it to improve my life. Looking better is just a perk to it. I am determined to make this surgery work for me. I will take this tool and put it to such good use. I know this is just a tool to help me. I will make this work.
