Hi I'm Mary 31 years old and have been married for 10 years. I have 2 beautiful amazing children. I have been struggling with my weight for about 9 years now since I had my first child. After having my second I had to have a hysterectomy and hit my all time high of 278 I have been dieting for the last 2 years and have only gotten down to 246. It's been a complete struggle and decided to have the Gastric sleeve done my surgery date is on May 13th I'm excited to start this new chapter in my life. I am lucky enough to have such a wonderful loving and supporting family. My husband is the best he is my biggest rock through this all. I am nervous about all the changes i have to make and I know in the end it will be worth it. I think I am more scared of the few weeks after surgery. I hope it's not as hard as some make it seem. Well heres to a new healthy happier me!
