My "Final Straw" was a series of events.

Last November my weight began to creep back up in usual fashion. My friend recommended this weight loss doctor who had a program consisting of high protein, low carb and appetite suppressants. When I went to the doctor he was so rude and the meds had some scary side effects that it pushed me to start exercising and dieting.

Jan 2014 I started exercise DVD programs and low carb dieting. Lost 23lbs by April 2014. May 2014-June 2014 I began to experience some weird debilitating light headedness so I stopped the dieting and exercise. By July I was feeling normal and had gained back 7lbs. By the end of August I gained back 15lbs.

*Final Straw*

September rolled around and a vacation that I had saved up for all year was approaching. Sadly, my weightloss goals I set for myself had failed and many of the cute outfits I bought in June for my vacation could no longer fit. 

3 days before vacation I cried myself to sleep. I cried cuz I gained the weight back and because I failed another weight loss goal.

2 days before my vacation I texted my older sister that I was gonna have WLS. She texted me back "me too."
