I have reached my all time highest weight at 300lbs. And although I don't look like I weigh that much, I do. I have never had a problem with my weight until after my pregnancy. I have always been slender/medium thick so being at this weight has really become uncomfortable. I have tried everything to loose weight and it works, but then I get lazy or unmotivated and I gain it back, plus a little extra.

I have been thinking about surgery for the last two years and after seeing my friends and some of my family members go through with it, I decided that it would be the best option for me as well.

My surgery will be done through Kaiser and right now I'm in the beginning stages. I have done a home sleep study and will be taking my GB1 class February 26th.
