[i][font=verdana, geneva, sans-serif][b][color=#0000CD][size=3]Hi I'm Deana I'm 27 and live in East Texas. I'm married to the love of my life Kenneth going on 8 years and we have 2 kids together and I have 2 amazing step kids. Iv been over weight for most of my life but it started taking off when I was about 12. I was always the big girl with the cute face or just one of the guys and growing up it sucked. Its hard when your kids want you to play with them and you can't because 1 you cant breath after a few min and 2 your in pain all the time. I have thought about getting sleeved for a few years now and the day my son said "Mommy why are you fat most of the other moms aren't" it gave me that extra push and well broke my heart. So I called my Doc and started the process and its all happening sooo fast. I went in Oct. 5th and my insurance approved me on Oct. 31st. the big day is on nov. 26th! I cant believe this is going to happen I'm still kinda numb but in a good way :) So my new life is about to begin as an old one ends my love for food will forever be changed and I'm looked forward to see whats in store for me next. If anyone wants to talk I'm here day or night. Support plays a big part in our day to day lives so don't be a stranger and it would be nice to make some new friends too :) you can add me to Facebook if your would like Deanab352@yahoo.com[/size][/color][/b][/font][/i]
