I am an 35 year old mother of 3, only gave birth to one and I am taking care of my twin nephews. I am considered morbidly obese, my highest weight has been 400 and that's carrying my child, which was 14 years ago. I started my journey of weight loss on January 3, 2019. When I finally stepped on a scale I was 375. My actual starting weight at my first surgeon's visit was 368. I am now 358 and some change. What made me finally go ahead and go with WLS was that I woke up everyday in some kind of pain. I am tired of waking up every single day in pain because of my weight. I have always been the biggest in my family. My Mom has had the gastric bypass over 20 something years ago and she is one of my biggest supporters. I have a good support team standing behind me, but you know there are still some people who think this is "taking the easy way out" and little do they know this is not easy in no shape form or fashion. I am on my 5th out of 6 Dietian visits. I have gotten everything else done on my checklist except the last date and my clearance for surgery. So I am looking for an July or August surgery date. BariatricPal has helped me gain a better understanding of what I am to expect. Also I have learned from reading other people's journey as well. I am just looking forward to working with my tool to get this weight off and to keep it off.
