Hi I'm a married mother of 2 and this year has been a really bad year already I'm scheduled to have the sleeve done Feb 25th and it's coming up quick but my family who knows nothing about the sleeve and they haven't gone with me to any of my appointments and have not tried to get educated about what I'm about to do are completely stressing my out. My mothers boyfriend of 8 yrs past away in January. Today is my uncles funeral he past away a couple of days ago and my aunt is in the hospital from a stroke she had when she found out about my uncle, and now my father is in the ICU because he was drinking himself to death because he's depressed about his brother and sister and sad and worried for my mom. My sister had a melt down begging me not to go through with the surgery because she fears the worst and my brother who is very quiet also in not so many words agrees with my sister and my mom straight out does not want me to do it. my husband who supports me but is still scared and is starting to worry to now because of everyones reactions so now he is leaning more toward being against me doing the surgery. Of course I'm scared but I'm 32 and weigh 310lbs I'm not doing it for vanilty I'm doing it for my health I wanna be a healthier mom and wife daughter and sister I'm not doing it because I wanna kill myself thats far from it but I'm soo confused and overwhelmed with everything going on I need someone to talk to so please anyone can you please give me advice and prayer.

Your trust needs to be in the Lord, not in what everyone else thinks. He has led you this far and He will be faithful to help you through the surgery and the journey to follow. Jer. 29:11 is one of my favorite verses saying that the Lord has a purpose and plan to prosper us and to give us hope and a future. I will be praying for you.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
