Why?
That's the first word people utter as soon as I tell them I'm getting Gastric Bypass, in my head I sigh out of frustration; thinking to myself here we go again.
So here's Why.
First: I'm morbidly Obese
Second: I've tried many different Diets and exercise regiments, most of them working briefly and then always resulting in regaining the weight back.
Third: I have mutated BRACA genes, meaning my chances for Breast, Ovarian, and Cervical cancer are A LOT higher than those of normal woman. One of the things that can help prevent cancer is living a healthier fit life.
Fourth: I want to live my life to the absolute fullest and not have this weight hold me back anymore.
