Thank you for replying. It means the world to me. It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose. I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster, however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family. I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful. My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure. I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here. Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this. It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror, well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind.
So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey.
