My name is Selene im 26 yrs old, a mother of 2 beautiful children, a wife and have been over weight for almost 8 yrs. I've tried everything i could think of even some crazzy things that i wouldn't recommend. i gained 100 pounds with my first pregnancy and havent lost it. On the outside im happy got it together and take care of everyone, but on the inside im in bad shape, im tired of failing in this battle of weight. Im become really lazy i guess im starting to give up and give in. But thats when i saw a news cliping of gastric bypas surgery it said IF YOU ARE 100 OVER WEIGHT WE CAN HELP. I went to the seminar and left saying no way but after talking to my closes friends they all actually supported me and said if it was for my health i should do it. I started to feel in away selfish because if something happens to me then i would have surgery without thinking of them first. But then i thought i would give them a better mom happy but a honest happiness not the fake one ive been doing for the past 7 yrs. So i made an appt with my Dr. and he actually reconmended it before i even asked so know i have my 1ST APPT WITH THE SURGEON ON MY B-DAY AUGUST 16. Hopefully after that visit i will be on my way to a healthier me.
