<p>At the age of 18, I found myself in college and pregnant.&nbsp; Being that young I did not have any type of healthy eating habits nor sense that my weight gain was not just 'baby fat'.&nbsp; During the pregnancy I gained over 100 pounds, not realizing that this weight would effect me for the rest of my life, I adapted because my fiancee did not mind the weight gain.</p>
<p>Fast forward 3 years later, my fiancee passes away and now I am left in a state of confusion and depression at the age of 21.&nbsp; My weight never was an issue, especially with the opposite sex, but then again I was 21.&nbsp; It wasnt until I was 27 that I began to see that my weight was an issue and started trying to lose by using pills and LA Weight Loss.&nbsp; With a lot of hard work, I lost 75 pounds and gained my confidence back.</p>
<p>Eventually, I gained all the weight back and then some.&nbsp; In 2011 I said enough is enough and sought out a doctor to look at my options.&nbsp; Since Georgia does not offer the weight loss surgery under medicaid, I moved back to Ohio and began my journey.&nbsp; Now, I have had the surgery lost 54 pounds and feel great!!!&nbsp; I am setting an example for my daughter, my mother and my friends and family.&nbsp; I am flawed and fall off the wagon, but I get back up and start again.</p>
