Let me began by saying I have been over weight all my life.  To be honest, it didn't bother me because I was a (active) Fat kid.  In school I had many friend, I was in the "In Crowd", and was considered the "Class Clown." Maybe my surroundings made my weight issue not a issue.  

As I begin to blossom into the person that I am today, I have come to the realization that my body isn't in a health state.  My BMI to me is getting to be off the charts.  

I went on my first diet in 2002, 2 years after I  graduated from High School.  My starting weight was 250lbs.  I went on a low carb diet and work-out 5 days a week.  I got down to 178 lbs in  2 years.  Ever since then I have been on a battle with weight.  YO-YO dieting and trying to meet goals.  I'm at rock bottom now.  Now my weight is 230lbs and my surgery is scheduled for November 5, 2007.  What a blessing from God!!!!!!!!!

Before I considered surgery, I prayed long and hard.  Then I went to my mom for approval.  It was granted by the love of my life (My Mom)! From there I went full force on planning for surgery. At that point since I had my mother's blessing and God, I didn't care what no one else said.

I had told friends that I have been approved to have WLS, and they say your not big enough and your crazy. You won't look right real skinner! I know I will look right and feel 100 % better! I think to myself you don't know the struggle of a "Fat Girl". Always being told you have a pretty face, but not body, not being able to shop for clothes at the mail,  having to wear extra clothes when working out. 

Lords knows!  I am so ready and I will make him and myself proud when that day comes and I will post before and after pictures.  Friends Pray for me! The big day is around
the corner!  "Only The Strong Will Survive!"
