"you must feel like you hit the lottery." the nurse said to me as I was sitting in the chair having my blood pressure taken. "well, yes, I suppose so." I said.

Hello. My name is Sharon. I am from New Orleans, Louisiana. I love food. Food loved me too much.. So I am here. What prompted me to getting surgery? Other than seeing my mother die at 63 from heart problems and my best friend of 11 years die last year from a heart attack? Well maybe because its a wake up to myself that i need to start living.. In a more comfortable healthier part of me.

I work at a school. My coworker and I were talking about how much I hate not loosing any weight. I diet, work out, and f**k it, i Just couldnt do it. She handed me a paper she got from school talking about how they are offering a lottery of people in the system to have a surgery and they get to pick the surgery best suited for each individual. After 4 long months and many visits and exams.. I got approved finally and my surgery is on the 18th of July!. I know its a tool.. I know it will help me. Im a beast. I know I can do this. :) Im very excited to start my adventure.
