[b]Pre OP[/b]- I have spent my entire life trying to be healthy and happy, I am happy but I failed at the healthy part. I am 22 and already have high blood pressure and am on the road to becoming a diabetic. I have tried every diet under the sun, it seems like it works for a short time then I just gain it all back plus some. My problem or more like nemisus is portion control, I just don't ever feel full or satisfied til I am at that "I am about to barf" spot. I researched and researched (that's what I do) and I found WLS, it was like a light went on in my brain. I found a way to assist me in my lifechange! HALLELUJHA! I can do diet, excersise and water, it's just my portion control that's where the WLS comes in. I am soooo excited for this, I want to live for myself my child and my fiance. I don't want to leave them short of when I was supposed to, I want to be able to run and play with my daughter not huff and puff and sit down because I am so tired. I am taking control of mylife and my weight, watch out world cause here I come.

[b]Post OP[/b]- Right now I am down 90 pounds and I am living it up, I can buy stuff from any store. I have the energy to play with my kiddo, and I love who I have become. I am confident and loud and I love to run and excercise its my drug. I have ups and downs and stalls like everyone else but you live and learn and I grow from my mistakes and poor choices. I am 19 weeks out and am 234 started at 322, goal would be 165-175! So still have a ways to go but I am loving every moment!
