Hi! I'm 28 years old and a mother of 3 little girls. I just had my epiphany last week, which is sad because I'm 5'4 and weigh 320 lbs and it took me this long to come to grips with the fact I need to change. My final straw was lying to my husband. He surprised me with a cruise to the Bahamas for our anniversary later this year. When we discussed how we would get to the port he mentioned flying.... At first I was like OMG YES! I've
Always wanted to fly.... But then fear hit me that i may embarrass him by not being able to fasten my seat belt... So I lied to him about me being scared to fly and I would rather drive....I have been over weight my whole life so I just figured that this is my life and I might as well just accept that I will always be fat. I made an appt with my pcp to see what all I can do to get the ball rolling with this surgery. I want to be able to ride a roller coaster with my children and not lie to them about mommy being too chicken to do it when I'm really not ( can't fit in the safety belts). I want to live without constantly being tired and feeling like a constant failure. I want to be able to go to the beach without feeling like a beached whale that people gawk at. I want my life back.
