WEll... I was born 43 years ago.. that was my thinnest weight LoL.. I have a twin sister who just happens to be a normal weight.. and my older sister is a WW leader.. No pressure here! Anyways.. weight has been the monkey on my back my whole life! The only positive thing.. my best friend.. since 7th grade also had the same weight struggle.. and she is my HERO.. She had WLS in June of 06 and she looks and feels fantastic! So she has been my strength! I have been married 20 years to a not so supportive man.. and I have a 17 year old son. My son and husband do support my decision for surgery... and that means alot. I decided this was my time.. I have had alot of negative comments.. so now I have chosen not to discuss my surgery with the people who cant say anything positive to me! ... all of which are not overweight of course! So summer of Cindy.. here we come!
