I am 35yrs old a wife to a wonderful husband and a mom to 2 beautiful girls. I have been overweight ALL of my life. I decided to have surgery because I wanted to make sure that I will be able to live another 35 yrs or more to see my children grow and have children of their own. Right now I am at my highest weight. I knew that this was going to be a problem for me when I started to have problems health wise and physical. I use to believe one time in my life that begin FAT was not a problem for me. I knew how to keep myself lookn good everywhere I went, and laugh and hang out with my friends, but I come to realize that was a joke. This is no laughn matter I have reach a point in my life where I have said enough is enough and I am going to make a change in my life. I started to do excerise and everything else but the weight would not go anywhere. So I decided to do some research and find out about the bypass surgery. While I was in the process of doing the research some co-workers of mine started getting the bypass done, and when I seen how happy they were and how this have changed them physically I knew I had to get started. I am not sayn that this surgery is a easy way out or if it is for everyone because it is not. A person has to be mentally stable to handle a big lifestyle change like this especially if they are the type of person who loves food. I have a great deal of people for support and I hope that by me begin on this website I can grow with new supporters and friends who understand excactly what it means and be overweight and encourage or at least give some support to someone else who may need some.

Because when you have options, you can do anything you want. So make the world your oyster so your life can be your gem. God is love." -- Rev Run
