I'm 150lbs. overweight and short, making it look like I'm more overweight than I am. But at 150lbs. overweight, looking more overweight is a moot issue. Being overweight has caused not only physical problems, but social problems. I'm very alone. I've tried to make friends, but I haven't been able to find one person who will look beyond my weight. I started my journey last year in October. I'm only now pushing through because my primary care physician and hospital coordinators lost my records for several months. I finally was able to get them started on getting approval in January and my date is now set for June 2 with Dr. Mir Ali at the Fountain Valley Regional Hospital Bariatric Center. I need your support to help me through the trying times. I appreciate your support and this site so very much!
