Tired of being a big girl with a pretty face (VSG)

On 9/13/16 after speaking with my co-worker who has had the VSG and lost a significant amount of weight I decided to take the active steps to change my life. I contacted a local bariatric specialist as well as my insurance company. Lucky for me I am fully covered; however, I have to wait 6 months. I visit my PCP to get my referral on 9/19/16. I will use this site to track my progress all the way thru. When I woke up this morning my weight was 288.4; and although that is much less than the 300+ I used to weigh it is not my ideal nor healthy weight goal. My approx goal is to get down to 150-175 as I want to get a tummy tuck and BBL after my weight stabilizes. Beyond the body image problems I have high cholesterol and an-ovulation. I honestly don't lack confidence or have esteem issues....I am just so tired of being this size. I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I have used every technique such as pills, teas, detoxes, diets, starvation and even purging when I was at my lowest. Over the past couple of years I really got into Zumba and have been able to lose and keep off approx 25lbs; however, I am plateaued. I will take these steps to put me in a healthy weight range that my active life will be able to maintain. To the future!
