I have been overweight my whole life. I was a chubby kid and I just kept getting bigger and bigger. Now at 303 lbs. it's time to do something. I have made many useless attempts to lose only to always gain back more. Yah, that's right same story as most everyone else here.  The thing with me now is that I am 35 and I am now realizing that I am not 12 foot tall and bullet proof. I am beginning to feel the knee pain, leg pain, feet pain, back pain, and all the many other things that super morbid obesity causes. Stress incontinence..ewww. Ohh! did I mention I am only 5'2" tall. I realize that with every year that goes by these things are going to get worse if I don't do something. I have no quality of life physically. My kids are doing without a lot of fun experiences due to my limitations.

I have been to a free class. I am going to another class, the one you have to pay for on March 10th, and this will officially get me started on the process to my weight loss journey. I am having a very hard time convincing my family that this is what's best for me now.  Particularly my Dad and stepmom.  My hubby is undecided, my daughter says NO MOM but mainly becuase she is listening to my parents. Nobody seems to understand how fed up I am. Everyone seems to think I can just diet and loose the 150 lbs. that I need to loose. Wouldn't it be nice if it were that easy. My parents have heard of one or two wls catastrophe's so therefore my outcome will be like those...of course. I am 35 and really don't feel I need permission, but it is so frustrating having the ones you love the most pulling against you. Wish me luck!  Updates to come!
