[color=#4b0082] :unsure: It all started September 5th at a seminar given by my surgeon. I knew I wanted to change my life for the better and that seminar was the icing of the cake.[/color]

[color=#4b0082]I have RESEARCHED bariatic surgery for years before even going as far as to ask my doctor several years ago about the gastric bypass. I never followed through because I was not ready, I wasnt ready to change. I know now that I'm ready to change. I'm ready to LIVE again this weight has taken too many years of my happiness away.[/color]
