Hi all, My name is Rita an dI'm 30 years old. Soon to be be 31 on June 16th. I'm married to the most amazing man who loves me no matter what. I have a 4 1/2 year old diva of a daughter (as you can see in my avatar picture - she is always posing). I have been struggling with my weight since I was about 6 years old. I have alwysa been overweight - even though at times I looked "normal" I was overwieght. I have tried every single diet imaginable - from phen phen to south beach. Been there tried that - didn't work lonbg enough. So now I have begun my journey with WLS. I do not have a dtae yet but my consultation at Barix in PA is June 6th with Dr. Pupkova. I met her at the seminar and I realy liked her from the door. She seems veyr open and honest. SO we will see. I want to have a life where I can feel comfortable in my own skin - I have in the past at points but now I don't even know who I am. I'm scared for my health since I have a small child - she needs me. She needs a healthy Mom and role model. I will be that for her, she is my world. 

Let the journey begin - I'm so ready.
