About Me...My Story
My name is Tamara. I decided in October of 2005 to go for the gusto so to speak. At this point I am openly sharing that I will be having WLS with everyone. 1st reason is haters and that’s the bad thing about haters they hate just because its not them. But overall everyone is supportive and very very excited for me. I haven’t told most of my family yet I felt I would surprise them at the next family outing. My mom is aware but she’s not to happy with it the way she sees it is that you only go to the hospital when your sick & she just doesn’t feel I’m serious or think about how I feel being 278+ at times but regardless of how she feels she'll be by my side as always. I wouldnt want you to get it confused I have never felt not accepted. I have a ton of friends, Im loved by all and hated by many because I am about my business not because I'm BIG. I intimidate women cause I'm not Skinny Skinny and I still do me with confidence. But can I shop in the 10 dollar store come on I have two kids and bills.
