Rewind to the past.  Every new years resolution we all start a new diet. Well every year for the past 10 yrs my resolution is always the same.  Here goes 2007, bringing in the New Year by starting Jenny Craig.  I thought for sure good Old Jenny will save me.  Nope..Jenny failed me, or I failed Jenny.  Anyways, It wasn't helping me, just like all the other weight lost programs.  There was a time when I was doing Jenny Craig, fat burners, phenterine and dieters tea.  I was fed up and depressed. I gave up and starting eating my favorite foods again because thats what made me happy.  I went to Disneyland in October of 2007 and I'm getting in Space Mountain, FUCNSHITFUCK I DON'T FIT IN THE DAMN RIDE!  I hated myself.  I couldn't stop thinking about it.  The next morning I called my insurance company and asked them if they cover Bariatric Surgery and the angel on the other end, said YES.  It was music to my ears.. of course I celebrated and went to the Cheesecake factory.  Extra strawberries on that cheesecake please!

I had no one to guide me, I did all the searching on my own.  It was simple, all I had to do was locate a surgeon and find out he/she was in network.  Attended a symposium, scheduled an appt. There I was, on my way to 2008.  6 months of pre-op and all that good stuff.  Dr. Lamar wanted me to lose 30 lbs before surgery.    I had 6 months to lose the weight.  Did I? HELLL NO!  I tried.  Instead of losing the 30, I gained 19.  What the heck.  I'm have the surgery, might as well live it up. 

I was wrong.  When I met with him mid 2008, he said "thats not good"   " your suppose to lose the weight, not gain it".  BOOHOO.  I was boohooing alright.  He said he will not perform the surgery unless I lose the weight.  I was devistated.  What did I do!! 

10/30/08 I did it. 
It's now 01/26/09 and I'm down 49 lbs.

(I had regret doing this surgery, I ended up in the hospital a couple weeks after surgery.  I had hunger pains and throwing up constantly.  I was really sick.)

I'm ok now.
