Does anyone really read these? I will be short, and to the point.

I have struggled with my weight ever since puberty - 11 years old. I started vigorous exercise when I was 13. Had eating disorders throughout junior high and high school. I have been fat and skinny so many times I lost count after 5 times. I am approaching 40 and I decided enough was enough. It is only going to get harder as I get older and my body can't take much more yo-yoing. My dad agrees to pay for the surgery in Mexico because I take after him and he really wanted to be part of my solution. Thanks dad! And that is about it in a nut-shell.
