I guess I should tell you a little of my story ...
I have always struggled with my weight never to the extent of 252 pounds but that weight just crept up on me. I never even seen it coming. It was like I woke up one day and there it was ... ugh worst day ever realizing I was 2 hundred plus pounds. I've lived at 252 for the last 8 years and have struggled to get it off. I've taken 50 pounds off about 2 or 3 times and then somehow got discouraged and gained it back.
I talked about WLS forever but hubby was against it and now he is my biggest supporter. After 3 years of going back and forth with it we finally agreed that it was time. The whole preop thing took about 6 months and I was terrified. Every step closer I kept feeling like i was going to back out. I was scared of failing at this but somehow pushed thru those feelings. I never thought that I would be able to get this far but here I am!
So if you're reading this and are going thru these same emotions keep pushing its so worth it! Once I was banded I never looked back and I don't allow those negative thoughts back in my head. If you want something bad enough you keep trying untill you get it. I'm going to succeed!
