My name is TC and I am 5'9" and my starting weight is 400# (at initial surgical consult I have always been larger than my friends.  As a kid I was just a little bit bigger, maybe 5-10 pounds and nobody probably noticed but me.  I didn't really start having a noticeable problem until junior high.  This is when I started to become a bit of a loner and I was around 180 pounds.  I used to dream of a shower that would melt off fat leaving only smooth beautiful thighs.  High school was worse.  I was never picked on because of my weight, on the contrary I had a few close friends.  I was the only one who picked on me.  Im blessed and happy to have had alot of support from everyone here and from a great friend at Work who reffered me to this site. Thous theres been days where I just get tired of persons that are negative what are they going to do takng Protein shakes or Vitamins theres much more other theings to worry than the lil stuff !!! Wel lI hope this has inspired someone.
