My name is Tiffany, I'm 25 years old and have been overweight my entire life. I am 5'2 and currently I weigh 290. When I met with the surgeon I weighed 303.
Im one of those females everyone looks at and says, " You would be so much prettier if you lost all that weight!" "You have a gorgeous face but..."
I have a five year old daughter and she is beginning to notice that mommy is a larger size than the average person. She makes remarks when she sees people of tv of similar size, "Mommy, that person is your size." I don't want my daughter to follow in my footsteps and become overweight as I am. I am unable to control my appetite. I am a firm believer in leading by example...I have tried every diet in the book, but I haven't been consistent. I feel this is my last resort.....and tired of being fat.
