Hello everyone I am a 30 year old woman. I am also a mother of 3 beautiful girls and a wife. I have been struggling with my weight for 12 years now. I have always flutuated throughout all these years. Currently i'm at my highest weight which is 256lbs. Before my first pregnancy which was 12 years ago I was always active and into sports. Then I became a young mother at the age of 18 years old and from that moment on I forgot about myself and just concentrated on my beautiful baby and then had my second daughter and then my third. All three of my children were C-section and I was just over it. 2 years back to back I had surgery for endometreosis and forget the last surgery messed me up because instead of it just being a small incision they did a vertical inscision from my C-section to my belly button. I felt disgusted of myself and since then put on 60lbs. Before I would have said no to WLS but today I say yes. I was the typical I can do it on my own and I don't need anyones help. Mainly because I never like to ask for help even with my children. I never really did my research on WLS and then this year I went into a depression in which I am still battling and I know it has some to do with me being morbid obese. OMG I can't even hear those words. In all my life I didn't think I would be at this weight. Mainly because if I saw myself gaining I would juice or do weight watchers, or join a boot camp called PRX and also fitgirls and a whole bunch of things that does not work for me. It did at the time where my motivation was there but this year itself motivation gone and I have tried to bring it back and nope nothing. My husbands and friends don't support my decision so it makes it hard especially when they are the only ones in my life right now. I get it they are afraid they had seen people with bad experiences and don't believe in it. But I have decided that it will no longer be about anyone else but me. Before I would have said okay you don't approve fine I won't do it but today is about my health and well being. Now I am just taking a few seminars checking out different places and picking the right doctor for me. I live in NY and would like to meet people that are going through the same or similar situation please feel free to write to me. I'm here.
