[font=comic sans ms, cursive][color=#4b0082]Like many of us here, my story is very simular. Been over weight for along time right around after having kids. Then one day i got dizzy (vertigo) found out i had high blood pressure, borderline diabetic and all of a sudden my eyes were open. Didnt recognize the person in mirror. I always tried to say of i am big and fit haaaaa i was only kidding my self. I finally had enough started going to a nutrionist and she recommended surgery I was very skeptical about it and scared , i thought to my self wow it has really gotten to the point were I need surgery. I decided to invest lots of time in me, reading up on foods, and protein stuff i used to laugh at other people about. I never realized what I was putting in my body , i mean dont get me wrong i knew that burger wasnt good for me but didnt think it had all that mess in it lol . I will now in bark in this journey of finding a healthier me. I hope will all have a successful story in the end . [/color][/font]
