I'm 22 years old and I work two jobs and go to college full time. I have been overweight since I can remember. I was always the big girl in my classes. I had to make sure that the desks would fit me, that the playground stuff would be strong enough to support me and the such. I strugged through so many diets, met with dietians and no matter what I did, I always stopped loosing weight around 250 pounds, no matter how hard I worked to loose weight.
When I got engaged in September of 2013 I was at my highest weight of 295 pounds. I decided soon ater that I needed to make a dramatic change in my lifestyle. My mom had gastric bypass roughly 10 years ago and has had amazing results. I began researching about the surgeries and surgeons and whatever I had to do to make this process happen. After talking with my family and my fiancee I decided that this is something I needed to do. I have so much to look forward to in my life (getting married, having children etc) that I don't want to be limited because of my weight. My fiancee also decided after some research that he was also going to have weightloss surgery.
