My story is the same as pretty much everyone else's.  I've been obese most of my life.  As well as miserable.  I had started to find myself with the attitude that as long as I could find nice clothes to fit me, I would be fine.  I was still able to find the clothes, but it was becoming more and more difficult and more and more expensive.  Then, I've watched a family member I love very much go through embarrassment and humilation because of her size and I want to try and do something before I am faced with the same feelings.  This is my last chance and my last resort.  All roads lead to this decision and I've made the last turn there is.  I know it's not perfect, but it's the best there is.  I have researched until the wee hours of the morning and studied more than I ever did when I was in school.  I have found a perfect fit for a surgeon and am grateful that I waited out the lengthy process in order to obtain his services.  I am so hopeful that my life will be so much more.  I enjoy life now, but hopefully, the best is yet to come!
