My name is Kym and I am starting my WLS and am ready for the change in lifestyle!
I have been over weight since 1998 ~ after the birth of my 3rd child the weight never came off. If anything I got heavier and heavier. I would go on diets, juicing, fasting, restrictions, WW none of it worked for me. I did have a brief period where I went to the gym for a time and lost 35 lbs, but when I stopped going, the weight came back on plus some.
I want the outside of my body to match the inside. I feel good mentally I am strong, but physically I have no energy, body aches/pains, legs and back always hurt, I'm stiff after sitting or laying down...you know how it goes. I want to be able to ride a bike comfortably again, walk without having leg and back pain and keep up with my family.
I am aware this is not a quick fix, but a HUGE change in my life. I am ready, I am committed and excited for my journey.
