I have been struggling with my weight almost my whole life!
It started when I hit puberty then I went threw a few years with being at a pretty healthy weight but once I graduated highschool I blew up like a ballon! :lol:
I would do fad diets and maybe loose 10 to 20 pounds here and there but nothing outstanding. Then I got married and we decided we wanted children and I found out I had PCOS and the only way to get pregnant was to loose weight........soooo I went on Atkins and lost 70 pounds my weight was at 190! :D
After I had my son the weight began to creep back up and before I knew it I was up to 294 pounds! :unsure: (more than it had ever been!)
Now my son is seven and I have been up and down I have gotten as low as 260 but somehow I get back up to the 80's.
I'm tired of this I want to be healthy I want to live life with my family. My mom is diebetic and has several problems. I want to try to prevent that as much as possible.
I want the sleeve to give me the tool I need to get this done!
I pray it will happen. :rolleyes:
