I have always been heavy. One day I woke up and said this is it. February 26th, 2011
 went to weight watchers.
I went only for a few weeks, then joined a gym.
( I have done all this many times before but never stuck to it.)
I lost 96 pounds in just under a year.
Kept it off, or close to it for 2.5 years.
Then developed an autoimmune disease and took steroids , still on lower dose now.
Gained back 55 pounds.
I am doing gastric sleeve to get back to where I was. 
I feel like a cop out cause I did it before, I can do it again.
But now I know how hard it is to keep it off and I will not let myself gain it back this time.
I think I do need some kind of self help book or support group.
I feel I am addicted to sugar and flour. If I eat a little I want more.
I thought about going to Mexico to save a little money, but I found a dr in florida who does self pay for $10,000.
My surgery is scheduled for August 15th. I can't wait to get back on track
