I am a 31yr old female who has struggled with weight issues my whole life. I was shy and unsure of myself throughout my entire youth. I watched as my girlfriends progressed into beautiful young ladies. I just progressively gained a pant size each year! My weight kept me from doing and trying many things that i so badly wanted to do...Quite frankly, I believe my weight issues as a child ruined those precious yrs. Well, at 29yrs old I decided to have the GBS. It has been 2 yrs and I am a whole new woman! I am no longer shy or anxious in public, I like cameras, I like the mall!!! I love the new me!! I am bold and funny....who knew!!!! LUV IT!!!! I enjoy getting dressed in my SIZE 10 Jeans!!!!!!!!!! WOOT WOOT!!!
