Well here i am...after going back and forth with the decision to get weight loss surgery since i was 18 years old ive finally decided to take control of my life and my health. I went to my first appointment with my surgeon yesterday and wasnt expecting everything to happen so quickly. To be completely honest Im really feeling very overwhelmed. I have no wait period whatsoever with my insurance company and all i have to do is get some bloodwork done and i can be scheduled for surgery immediately after. IM SO EXCITED!!! and scared, and anxious, and emotional...but most of all excited :) hopefully this will be the beginning of a wonderful journey and my new life with my husband and son. I already feel like ive hit rock bottom with my weight and health, i dont want to be dead by the time im 50 and i want to be able to enjoy my life while im still young.as of right now im only 24 and feel like an old woman from carrying around all these extra pounds so i feel really positive about all of this and my decisions things can only get better from here on out right?!? :)
