I have struggled all of my life with being over weight..i guess you could say i came into this world over weight..being born 10lbs 3 1/2 oz..growing up it was i had to finish what was on my plate regardless. I have been a member of this site for awhile. I was in the process of going for surgery before, back in 2011. I got all the way to the submitting to insurance and I got the letter stating that the weight loss center i was going to was not in network any more and they wanted me to drive like 5-6 hrs to start the process all over again. I refused. So now, I am back because my new insurance covers my local hospital. i originally was for the band,but seeing my friend struggle with hers and after talking with my previous doctor. i have opted for the sleeve. I have already had 1 nutrition class ( my insurance only requires 3 over 90 days) and well on my way to 2017 being my year.
I am at my highest weight ever and that saddens me. I have to do this no matter what i have to sacrifce.
to say im not nervous would be a straight up lie BUT im tired of feeling like i do..tired of not being able to do things i want b/c i either cant or i dont fit so here i am soon to be on the other side..ready to get my life back..ready to start living for me!
