I have been overweight most of my life.  Throughout the years I have tried every plan imaginable and lost a lot of weight, probably enough to populate a small village!  LOL.  However, I seem to always find it again.  I have finally decided to go this route because I want to stay healthy and not get the weight related diseases like diabetes.  It is a bit of a frightening proposition, however, I have been viewing my condition in a new light.  Obesity is a disease and surgery is part of a multi pronged approach to combat it.  When I think of it in this perspective I can handle the surgery idea a lot better.  
So with hope and trepidation I am on this journey.  I look forward to meeting others who are also on this road.
