How I got here

It has been many many years since I have felt comfortable in my own skin.  I have gain and lost several hundred pounds over the course of my 43 years.  There isn’t a specific time that I recall where I can pinpoint where my weight loss struggle began.  I do have memories of being heavier than the rest of the girls as early as middle school.  I got pregnant when I was 18 and ballooned from there.  I gained about 60+ pounds when I was pregnant.   I finally made the decision to get weight loss surgery.  My consultation appointment was Wednesday October 26th. I weighed in at a staggering 246lbs.  How did I let myself get this bad.  I could try to pretend that I didn’t notice, however I couldn’t find a photo to put on this page because I don’t let anyone take my picture.  lol.  I knew.  I knew the whole time.  I digress.. After the meeting and weighing in, I started thinking about all the other things that I wish I could change.  Why not fix all the other stuff too!  Make a it a year long process to drop some major weight, get my teeth fixed and remove the moles that have bothered me forever.  And with that the journey begins……
