I am a 44 year old wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt and dog owner.

I have been overweight and struggling my entire adult life. Early on it was more vanity than anything. In the past ten years, it's been about my health. I am not healthy mentally or physically - this weight has taken a toll on my mental and physical health.

So in August, 2013, I decided to seriously look at weight loss surgery. I looked at WLS prior to that a few times, but it felt too drastic at those times. I wasn't ready. Today, I am resolute in my decision and yes, I'm scared, too. But my fear is trumped by the reality that I will lose years if I don't get this under control now. Years. I want to grow old with my husband. I want to watch my son grow up to be a man. I want to watch him graduate college and get married and then, someday, become a grandma. If I don't take control now, I won't have the time.

So, that's me - I'm starting this journey at 255 pounds. I want to get to 150, then make a secondary goal if I feel like I have to.

Thanks for reading.
