My story starts off by saying that I’ve been big all my life. Since I was a little girl I was always bigger. My parents separated when I was little & were always fighting and that’s when my weight started to increase. They ended up back together and separated again and back together again. This was a process for me. I had 3 older siblings & I was the youngest until I was 12 and my mother had twins.
At around 12 I was probably already 150lbs. I don’t ever remember being under 200. I carried it well, until I had my son at 18. My daughter at 20. And it went up and down from there ranging from 280-230 for 3 years after my I had my daughter. I’ve seen the same primary care doctor for 8 years and she is my God Send. After trying almost everything I discussed weight loss surgery and started my journey. And boy oh boy I don’t regret it at all! I’ve had no complications with the sleeve. And thank goodness I can really eat what I want, when I want, but I watch what I eat and drink because I don’t want to stall or sabotage myself.
Best decision I’ve made. And working hard for it. I haven’t been this little since early teen years. If there is anything I’d like to say, it’s don’t compare your journey, don’t listen to Nay Sayers! & Never let yourself get discouraged. I did have stalls. I did have struggles, so make a way to make this work for you!!! If its not working, its not the way you are supposed to be going. I struggled with this at first losing slowly but I kept thinking hey! At least I’m loosing and slower the better!
