Soooo.. .. I Been reaallly thinking bout this for months n decided to go ahead with it. I've always been very curvy. It wasn't until I had n lost my twins. Rescued my mom from a fire, had and lost my son. Then had and almost lost my dgtr, that the weight came on along withba unhelpful friend named 'steroids' lol. Since then it's been very very hard to get and keep weight off and I've tried EVERYTHING! I MEANE EVVVVVVVRYTHING! Nothing worked no matter how well it long I followed. Seeing I wasn't the only one gave me hope so I've been goin to Dr appts losing weight each month right? Last mth I lost 13lbs on my own then 2 wks later, June 16th, I got in a car wreck n broke my leg tore acl n ripped meniscus in 2 places. I jus walked with out side yesterday. My f/u, LAST appt is this thur and I'm soooo nervous that I may hve gained a pound or 2 due to my broke leg. I'm like prayin lol. I've been eating as healthy as I cn while I've been dwn but I knw I need cardio too n I can't ????. Im nt sure how to feel. I've done countless hrs of research n interviews support groups... I dnt wanna mess this up ya knw? Anybody else have something tragic come up rite before Ur last weigh in?

Thanx for all the support n stories. It really helped. Sorry it's been so long. Got a lot going on emotionally physically n I be had 2 deaths 3 days apart so please keep me in prayer.

I'm still on my preop liquid n it's.....ok... Lol not as bad as I thought. Probably bcuz I don't eat a lot ne ways bcuz I'd my work schedule. Now I'm getting all these offers to go out to fabulous restaurants n I gotta say no.???????? Lol it's worth it. I've been working to hard to go back ya know? I have a lot of emotions right now... nervous, anxiety, fear, excitement. I can say I have a great team behind so that eases my mind greatly. I'm getting more motivated As I read the stories knowing I'm nt alone. A lot of people look dwn on this or wldnt understand my why's so I've tld only a select few. Hoping I'll last on this liquid thing cuz after surgery this another 2 weeks liquid! Yaaaaayyyy!!! Lol

Todays the day! Finally!
So the day has come n well....I don't feel like I thought I wld. Lol I dnt really have a feeling at all. Surgery at 11. gotta b there at 10 to check in.Neutral may describe it. Had a lot of losses with family/ friends in past 3wks. I've had a lot of support though. It's seems unreal. Finally I'll b rid of this burden. Wondering how my taste buds will change. Will I actually like cheese later? Uugghhhhh! I hope not! I'm confident in my dr and team so Im nt worried. No flies...butterflies that is. I'm jus ready. Time came quick. Praying for full n complete recovery with no complications. Outside being fat, I had no other issues. I have knee surgery 2 weeks out from my car accident in June so I'll b laid up again. I'll update whn I'm in the land of land of the sleeved!
