I'll make this as short and sweet as possible. I'm 45 years old, I'm a nurse, wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, & friend. (not necessarily in that order either)... I have struggled with my weight and eating disorders since i was 15 I guess. I've went from 190 to 125 then back several times in my life and i'm tired of it. That's why I'm having surgery to try to break this cycle. This time I havent' even been able to lose 10 pounds. I've tried everything, even Nutrisystem. My husband lost 20 pounds, I didn't even lose 5 on the Nutrisystem plan. I plan to start running again after I get banded. That's going to be my new obsession, instead of food. I used to run when I was in highschool, ride horses, & stayed active. I plan to do both again regularly. I can barely walk up the hill in my yard without becoming winded now. I hate it! Alot of people think I'm not heavy enough to have surgery, they say "just eat better" HAHA that's really funny! If I could eat better I wouldn't be having surgery! I know I'm doing the right thing, and I just know I'll be alright and I'll lose weight and keep it off. I just know it. That's why I just can't wait for August 28th to get here! It's going by pretty slow. I'm going to mexico to have surgery, people think I'm crazy for that too, but it's only 4500.00 in Mexico, as high as 20,000 - 30,000 in the states! I have researched the surgeon, and feel that he is as qualified as any us surgeon. I have another surgeon near home to do my follow-up/fill care afterwards. I have everything set up and I am READY! This is my story and I"m sticking to it! Thanks for reading my jumbled thoughts...
