WOW.....The support I get......
Mar 23, 2008
The support I get from everyone on here is Great.It means more to me then I could ever put into words. But I want to thank you all from the bottom of my soul, for it all. But it is overwhelming to me sometimes, I come on here to check my mail and I have such nice comments from people and them telling me I have helped them to make the decision to have it done also. Wow you all make me cry and its a good cry. But also a scared cry. I am just a Lady that wanted to save my legs and my life. Nothing more nothing less. What I have done anyone can do it. It just takes allot of will-power and determination and Hard work. But trust me it is so so worth it. You also need a great support system which I get from my Church family. Friends and loved ones. The support groups work if you let them. And OH is the best place for it also. There are days I would not of made it, if it wasn't for the people on OH. So to everyone thats here you are also my Heroes.
Now to bring you all up to date...I went and saw a Plastic surgeon on the 5th of March in Raleigh, When I went in there I felt like I was doomed before I ever walked in the door! They knew or said they knew my insurance would not pay for it so I was a waist of there time. Really didn't want to here what I had to say at all. Didn't do what I asked them to do nothing. Even the person I was suspose to talk to that handles the Insurance part of was not in. She was out sick and suspose to get back to me. Guess what that has been 2 1/2 weeks now. No call nothing. But I am not giving up just moving on to find another one. I will never give up. But it is hard some times. But that is where I am now. Thanks for reading. Its helps to write things out sometimes......
Happy Easter to everyone also.

THANKS FOR PUTTING UP MY BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES. THAT MEANS ALOT TO ME. MORE THEN I COULD EVER PUT INTO WORDS.
Now to update you all on myself. I have a appointment with a plastic surgery center next month. I am so excited about it I can't wait. I am also a little scared to be honest. Even though they take my insurance i don't know if my insurance will pay for it yet. I can just pray about it. I am doing okay with the MS i guess I have alot of headaches that keep me in bed. And i still get alot on numbness in my fingers and wobbly when I walk. But I am doing okay. I refuse to let it get to me. I have came to far in my life to let it get me down. I have over came to much to let this one thing beat me. So I have it set in my mind that it won't beat me!!!!!!
I am now down to 318 pounds that is a total of 211 pounds lost...Wow. I never knew I could do it. But it has not been easy trust me on that! I still have a long ways to go.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU OUT THEIR THAT ARE THINKING ABOUT HAVING THIS SURGERY DONE. TRUST ME IT IS WELL WORTH IT. ITS TIME TO START A BETTER AND HEALTHIER LIFE FOR YOURSELF AND ALL THAT LOVE AND CARE ABOUT YOU!!
THANKS TO ALL MY SUPPORTERS OUT THEIR. ALL YOUR KIND WORDS HAVE HELPED ME ALOT THROUGH THE TOUGH TIMES. I JUST HOPE I HAVE HELPED OTHERS.
I hope this helps

I am almost a year out, I can't believe how fast the past year has went. Well I have done good with my weight loss. I have had alot of other things going bad in my life but where there is bad there is also good. I have gound out that I have MS. but I am okay with that. I also have about 165 pounds of skin that I need to have removed.
The skin is the hardest thing to deal with for me.
It causes health problems for me. But I hope something will work out so I can get it removed.
If anyone out there know how to help please let me know.
I feel so much better now then what I use to. I would do it all over if I had to. It was well worth it to have this surgery.
Where I Am now!
