I am 23 years old and I am 220 lbs.(YIKES!!)
My mother had the RNY procedure done about 1 1/2 years ago and has done sooo well she lost over 100 lbs !!
I'm so proud of her. =o]
Now that I am older and have children I want to be able to chase them around and get into the pool with them,but with my weight where it is I am just not that great at running when my thighs rub together and my appearance in a swimming suit is horrifying.When I was younger I just made a joke of my weight and had gotten used to it.But when I saw my mothers results I thought why wait,these are my best years why should I waste them in a fat suit!!
And that's where my journey began....
I have been in the process of trying to get approval for the WLS for about a year now I have been denied once stating that I neede to monitor my diet for 6 months which I've done so my doctor has sent a new request to my ins,so we will se in a couple of weeks.
