My name is Jennifer. I am 27 years old and I am married to a great guy named Don. We have one 8-year old son named Jordan. I am 5'3" and weigh 262 pounds. I have struggled with my weight all of my lfe. I have lost weight before but I've always managed to gain it back. This is the most I've ever weighed. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which my weight has a lot to do with. This past spring I ruptured a disc in my lower back which has caused severe right leg pain. It makes daily living a constant struggle. The doctor has told me that basically I need to loose a large amount of weight in order to feel better. I went to my OBGYN recently and she recommended WLS . At first I couldn't believe what she said, but the more I thought about it, she is right. I am tired of not having the energy to do the things I enjoy. I am looking forward to a new me. I have a great family who I know will support me all the way!!!!!
