I havent always been obese. As a child I was a crazy athlete and as I got to being an adult and not doing nearly as much sports and such I really gained the weight. I struggled for 10 years, up and down and up and down. Then my Dr. finally said that she rather I just stayed big as the up and down trend is so hard on our bodies. I was devastated that she would even say such a thing and I knew it was time to do something more significant. I did my research for a whole year, saved my butt off and got my sleeve. My Dr. was on board since day one! I have now lost 60lbs and feel AMAZING! I am so happy I did what I did. It was hard in the beginning dont get me wrong. There were lots of tears and asking if I had done the right thing, but once I healed it was hello to my new start to my new life!
