Hi everyone!
Well, I guess my story starts here. I am classified as "morbidly obese" but I don't feel like I am sometimes. I live my life to the best of my abilities; I have friends and I am able to connect to people past my weight. But life is hard sometimes, especially when being big holds me back from doing the things that I want to do the most. When I run and I feel like I can't breathe anymore, I know that if I were smaller this problem wouldn't exist.
I am hoping that getting this surgery will jumpstart the rest of my life, free from restrictions and fears. I hope that the people around me support me and continue to love me through my trials.
