<p>&lt;p&gt;Hi! I'm Marissa, and I'm scheduled for surgery on Feb 24th. I've been overweight for more of my life than I have not - and I am a perpetual dieter. I have tried EVERYTHING. I've had some skinny days in my life, but could never hold on to them long... thus, I have boxes and boxes of skinny clothes (size 6!) stacked in my garage, that I am just DYING to get back into. Sadly, I didn't get to wear those for long, and I should have known better than buying a bunch of designer clothes in size 6, since odds are, that I wasn't gonna be thin enough to really even enjoy them. But of course, I said what I'm, sure every perpetual dieter says.... I'm never gonna let myself get heavy again... I'm throwing out or giving away all of my fat clothes... riiiiiight. Then I was just stuck with a bunch of beautiful tiny clothes that now, if I tried, I wouldn't even be able to cram a thigh into....&lt;/p&gt;<br />
&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;<br />
&lt;p&gt;But I digress. My story. I am 32 years old, and tired of being overweight. Yes, I love to eat. that is the root of the problem. Dieting helps - sometimes. Not much, and it is a constant battle against the hunger. And obesity runs in my family. I have 2 aunts that have gotten RNY bypass, and an uncle and a cousin that have gotten Lap Band. My mom and brother are also overweight. And I am now at the heaviest I have been in my life -- if I was a drug addict, you could say I'm now hitting rock bottom.&lt;/p&gt;<br />
&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;<br />
&lt;p&gt;So I'm doing something about it. WITH MY MOM. Yep, we decided to take charge of our weight and our health, and we are getting the surgery done together - back to back. Its going to be quite the adventure, but at least i have a close support buddy to share it with every step of the way. At least family dinners and holidays will be a bit easier, since we'll have each other to lean on!&lt;/p&gt;<br />
&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;<br />
&lt;p&gt;And the countdown begins... here I come FEB 24th! This skinny girl wants OUT!!!&lt;/p&gt;</p>
