My journey began after my first born 21 yrs ago I was young and was able to snap back in shape.aw well with my second child.Its not till I got married with my 3rd childs father and ballooned up to 240lbs,Now being 5'3 240lbs things streched beyond belief! I really hit a breaking point and knew I had to find my self again! I did things the old school way (diet & excierces) and lost 100-lbs.Yessssss!!! I finally broke through the odds and have mantained the weight off for 7 yrs now!!!! But as you can Clearly see through the pics I have some loose skin and Id done hidding it ,tucking it ,Keeping the lights dim,ect.Im ready to begin my new chapter in life,Im ready to LIVE!!!

Quote: The less I know the better,I dont approve of what you are doing..Proceeded to scare me with going under anesthesia ,and how i need to be happy with my self.That shes to stressed out to deal with me. End quote!
You know her support is NOTHING new!! But you would think (she) would put HER SELF A SIDE!!!! &how I'm needing more support more than ever!! I asked her to be positive for me and to understand..But....See I come from a family that is poor in health,weight,ambition,dreams,and everything that comes with the Typical Hispanic Family(High-blood pressure,diabetes..Besides a few good Hens (my aunt tina,my sister,and yes my self).& No I may not expect them to all understand...BUT No one knws what I have endured to get here!!! How I weighted 240 lost over 110lbs and have lost this all on my own..NOW with having a small umbilical hernia due to carrying this skin around I feel its in my best int so i may move on with the rest of my life.exercise with ease,and yes maybe float dwn the Frio River this summer in a 2 piece if i wish too!..This is a little hard as I write this in Tears!!! But I knw I will be ok..and I have my FAITH to guide me through!!!.Sry friends that I turn to this site to vent lol..But surgery effects everyone we love..Its a BIG DEAL.& I hope that everyone has the support they need..
Going to the Dr today to get my prescriptions ,and...

anesthesia was HORRIBLE and I think that's where I got the fear from because I don't recall being this scared/frightened.I was nauseated,they scared my mom/daighter stating they might need to send me to the ER for I'm not wanting to wake.up.!!! But 45 mins later I came through and i was thrown in the car and that was it..No follow up calls just blahhhhhh..
.NOT THE CASE HERE!!!! My surgeon and staff are AMAZING..I have done my home work...I'm just ready to get on the recovery train...I knw the pain is going to take a little toll..but nothing worst than this mind torture..I will keep everyone updated as I will have lots of time on my hands..
Also My wonderful Aunt has found a beautiful Operation Prayer please feel free to copy and paste..
Prayer before an Operation:
Loving Father. I entrust myself to Your care this day; guide with wisdom and skill the minds and hands of those who minister in Your name; and grant that every cause of illness being removed I may be restored to soundness of health and learn to live in more perfect harmony with You and with my fellow man through Jesus Christ. Amen. Into Your hands I commend my body and my soul. Amen.
