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.
It's a New Year!

Wow its already 2008!!!!
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!

Well I am dealing better with the skin issue. I know it will get worse before it gets better but it is all worth it.I rather have the skin then the fat. I need to learn to stop being so hard on myself. If I don't reach a goal on time its not the end of the world. I have to remember my doctors have me on allot of restrictions when it comes to exercise. So that don't help much when I can't walk. But I do try. So I don't think I am doing all that good on the weight loss. I wanted to be under 400 already but I am not. I cried because of this and It gets worse because I still am not under 400 yet. So I keep pushing myself harder to get there. I ask myself am I ever gonna get there?My next goal was to be close to 200 by the end of Aug. is that to much? I hope not. But that is where I would really like to be by then.
Trying to deal with all the extra skin!

I am happy to be losing the weight, but dealing with all the extra skin is hard to do. I have allot of extra skin now. It's getting to me more then I thought it would. I don't like how it makes my face look now. I hate the fact I have wiggle in my lower arm, I expected it in my upper arm but not my lower arm. We won't even talk about my legs and thighs or hips and butt. They are real bad also. I am just having a real hard time with all this skin. And I have just lost 100 pounds so far I still have over 200 pounds to go so please someone help me if they can. Plus I am having trouble eating. The thought of it makes me sick. If I do eat I get sick and it comes right back up. Is this a stage or what?. Plus I am having food demons attacks, of all the food I can;t have or didn't ever like. But I knoe it's just in my head, and not my body wanting them. Has any one else had this also?
