I've been on the heavier side for a majority of my teenage life and all of my adult life. I've tried exercising, Seattle Sutton's, and the Atkins diets and they all work for a while but then I slack off and the weight comes back on a lot faster than it came off. This is my last resort! I realize that this isn't a diet that I can slack on this is a lifestyle change and the surgery is only a tool, it is up to me to keep the weight off and I am mentally prepared to take on this challenge!
