Calling the Doctor Tomorrow to Schedule - Wilmington, NC

I am 23 years old, 5'3 and 193 pounds. Back in...

I am 23 years old, 5'3 and 193 pounds. Back in high school I was about 125 and got on the shot for birth control and gained 70 pounds in 6 months. I didnt change anything in my life i.e eat more and stuff like that, just was one of the lucky ones who gains a ton of weight on the shot. After that I just kept gaining and gaining. I was well over 200 at one point but I started doing the insanity workout and lost 42 pounds the first time around, the second time I lost another 24. Now I am at a stand still.

I am not going into this procedure wanting to come out with the perfect body that makes men chase me. I dont need all that lol. I just want to feel good about myself again. I want to do it healthy because also back in high school, i had an eating disorder, got all the way down to 97 pounds. I looked terrible. I was always sick and miserable. I have seen myself get into the same thought patterns I had back then. I am so afraid of going back to that again. That is one thing I am concerned about with getting this procedure is that I get a flat stomach and I already plan on toning up and losing some more weight, but I am concerned that it wont be "good enough" in my eyes. I have talked to my doctor about this and he has been amazing. He is supportive and very nice. I have a great support system at home too. Its just one of those things I am concerned about.

Some of my goals are to get some confidence back. I want to get it done now so I am well into the healing process by next summer so I can wear a bathing suit....no i dont wanna wear a cute little bikini lol. I just want to wear a real bathing suit. I never even wore one when I was at my lowest weight. I would like to get down to about 135 after I can start working out and exercising again and maintain that. yes I have been considering this for a few years. Just tossing the idea around, but for the past 3 or 4 months I have actually been serious about it. So I met with a doctor and immediately felt comfortable with him. I got my care credit card in the mail today and I have 24 months to pay off about 9400 with no interest. I am ready to do this. I am going to have one last talk with someone who has been by my side this whole time and tomorrow I am going to call and start the process.

Just called and set up a consultation. At the consultation, he was amazing, very kind and caring and understanding.
