I am 30 years old. At the time of my surgery I will be 31. I am married to be my best friend, Darrel. He is my life and my love. We have two wonderful boys They are six years old. I have health issues that include Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus which alone causes other things. I have been on sterioids for the past 10 years. I have always been overweight, but the past 5 years , I don't know what happen. I worked out and watch what I ate and gained weight. I think I got to the point why try so hard and nothing happens. Then one day I got on the scale and weight 325. I broke down. I do not want to be this weight anymore. I am still young, I want to play outside with my babies. I am clam, I do not like going out in public or be around family. I feel like everyone talks about my weight gain. So I am using the sleeve as my tool to get my life back to the way I need it to. I want to go to Disney world and ride rides with my boys. I want to play outside.
