After being obese all of my life (with a 4 year stint of playing sports and NOT eating during high school), I have decided this might be the time to change. I have seen a few friends have great success. I started this journey in July 2013. The program I am in is very strict has has many mandatory actions one must take and do. I was approved into the program in August, but i still have many "to do"items.
The biggest one being to lose 27 pounds! I exercise about 4 times/week and I have drastically changed my eating habits but the lbs are not moving! My surgery goal is December 2013!
I came to this site looking for support and guidance.
I am 99% sure about this surgery but still have that 1% of doubt if I am doing the right thing!
