I am 29 years old living in Las Vegas and I finally got the courage to seek a doctor for my weight problem. I have been heavy all my life and I have never felt like a normal human being since I am limited to certain things in life. For 29 years, I have been avoiding the topic of losing weight, especially since I have a crazy mother than puts me down every opportunity she gets, reminding me how fat I am and how people in public look at me. This has always put me into a dark depression about my weight until the day I met my husband. We moved away from the negativity from my mother and I started seeing the true light about my weight. I am finally taking the courage to do something about my weight for permeant results and I am looking forward to it. Like many overweight people, I have been on many diets in the past, but sadly my diet plans never fall through all the way for my lack of self dedication. I am currently starting my Diet plans with my Doctor for the 6 month diet plan in order for me get this surgery. My husband and I have decided to make a list of things we can both do together (and alone) once I get skinny. I plan to go on a roller coaster with my husband at Six Flags in LA since that is his favorite theme park. I haven't been on a roller coaster since I was 15 years old since I cannot fit into the rides. 
This is my story and I plan to rely on this website for support and questions.
