So this is me.... I've always been overweight, big-boned, thick, curvy, (whatever term you want to use for fat insert here -->)   Sure I've tried multiple diets, pills, etc... Nothing worked! No one enjoys going “under the knife” but for me, I feel this is my last chance.  I am 311lbs, WTF???    Gone is the confidence that I once had...My health is declining (I should not have joint pain, back pain, HBP and all the other crap that comes with being overweight).  I've noticed that this weight issue has taken over my life to the point that I've become withdrawn from those close to me. Trying to be social when your constantly worried about others watching what your eating, whether or not you can sit comfortably on a chair or in a dining booth is a full-time job, LOL

I am ready to leave all of that behind and take back my health and spirit.  I want to be able to do things that I've always shied away from because of my size.   Going into this alone with zero support from my family (yep, they all think I am being an extremist) doesn't bother me.. They don’t get it and quite frankly, I don’t have the energy to debate this topic with them any longer. I need to do this for me and only me.  I am sooooooo excited to begin this journey whether they are with me or not.  I know this isn't an overnight change where after WLS I will wake up with this brand new attitude but it Will be a start to a more healthy lifestyle and positive outlook on life.  I  forward knowing that this is the best decision I've made for MYSELF. 

So that's my story but it isn't the end, this is only the beginning.

Watch Out World!!
