My story isn't a long one nor is it unusual. I have been on the heavier side all my life. I could blame it on life events or tragedies however everyone has them and not everyone has a weight problem. I present to the world as very outgoing but am actually quite shy...the outgoing part came out of necessity rather than natural inclination. A friend had this surgery over a year ago and invited me to do the same (much like how we get pedicures together). I instead opted to hold off to see how she did. She has done amazing and so it is time for my "pedicure". ...ha ha. My husband is supportive in my decision (he is taking off two weeks to "take care" of me ). I am now booked for surgery on August 1st 2013 and am looking forward to the upcoming year of changes with excitement !
