I realized I was in trouble when the prescription for blood work from my primary read Morbid Obese.... wow... it hit really hard... I just wanted to be regular Obese, drop the morbid part off...
I knew I had a problem and it was my addiction to food.  Yeah I had other issues but who doesnt, my main concern now is my health, those other problems will still be there but I may not if I continue this way.  So I decided to act, and I had it done.
Now I am so much better for having lost as much weight as I have and am looking forward to losing more.  I am reborn and am learning more of me each day.  I am falling in love with myself and am respecting the new me.
My relationships with everyone have improved also and this has been noting but a blessing.
