OK I hate talking about me. Which is why I don't usually fill these things out. I am finding though that part of the reason I overeat is because I am so wrapped up with everyone else that I forget about me. Scary.

I am like a million others who have been fighting this battle all my life. But I see I light at the end of this tunnel. Easy way out? No. I don't think having 85% of your stomach removed easy. I also don't think living with the ridcule and stigma of being overweight is easy either.

But this isn't for them, it's for me. I am going to be healthier, I am going to be fitter, I am going to be lighter, and I hope to be able to live a long long time. I wasn't so sure before. I now seeing the future in a better light.
