My name is Tierra. I have been yo-yo-ing and dieting my whole life only to get frustrated and for this to be my last option. I was raised all over and consider myself an international girl, teehee :). I have tried so far two times to get WLS and hoping along with praying 3rd time is the charm. I am currently 302 pounds and about 5'3 and I hope for someday to stop staying in the 300's and somehow lose at least 60 pounds or something that would be great at least. I currently live in the bay area (cannot tell you where but I think my profile says it anyways). I found Bariatric Pal through a person I met at one of my WLS Groups. I feel like I am just starting all over again with this stuff but not quite. The good part is that I saw everything I did wrong the 1st two times and to learn from it and move forward. I am currently trying to talk with my new doctor to be referred again to my old WLS surgeon and want the Gastric Bypass. I like Bariatric Pal because I feel like I have extra support here and also get to meet new people that are struggling or accomplishing so we share the same struggles and it's good to have advice and tips to be successful. A little more about me... well... my favorite color is pink and black, I like Eminem, P!nk, Hello Kitty and music A LOT. I like movies, cosplaying, cooking, other ethic cultures, exercising and being mainly by myself I'm an introverted homebody, hehe. I now have no idea what else to write in my story but I guess time will tell what new stuff I will put here.
