I started gaining weight when I was six years old.  Hypothyroidism runs in my family so my mother knew what the problem was when my gymnastics career came to a halt because I was gaining weight fast at 6 years old.  I was on my way to becoming a great gymnastics star at a young age. 

I have been on thyroid meds since that day in 1975...  I was about 200 pounds at 18 years old and that is when I founded out I had PCO.  I really did not care at the time because kids where not in my future.  How do things change?  

I have struggled with weight my entire life.. Always being the last one to get asked to dance or having a boyfriend.  Men seem to think I need them because I am fat and approach me in a sexual manner at all times.  I am not deprived of sex.  I wish that would stop.  It will really soon. 

I have lost 30 pounds here and 40 pounds there but finally got a personel trainer in 2001 and lost 65 pounds. I gained it back because I did not like the hanging skin and how I look without clothes.  I have over come that image of myself to do the surgey on November 14, 2006.  I am ready for the skin and ready for the transformation of life.  I want to be free from this FAT prison that I created for myself.  I get angry at myself because I have distorted my body with all that fried food and candy over the years.  Now I need plastic surgey to give me a normal body. That part sucks.

I am most afraid because I have no image of what I should look like small.  I look at my sisters and can only wonder if that is going to be me in June 2007. 

I started this process in March 2006 at 287 pounds and lost 43 pounds since my last weigh in at Kasier. I want to be around 145 when it is all done.

I am feeling a little blue today.  I just want to get on with this process and start a new life.  I am serious thinking about leaving after 6 months. I am not telling my husband or family.  I want a whole new life.  It is a rebirth after all. 

Nov 6

I feel great today because i started dressing up more and men are coming out of the wood works.  I love all the attention.  I have appts today with the surgeon, nurse, and anthesiologist.  I am not nervous at all.  Just stress because I want Nov 14 to be here NOW..
