i was 336 pounds and wearing a snug size 30 and was as wide as i am tall
my insurance does not approve sleeves and i was (too scared to have bypass).
so i opted with the lap band…my dr even rolled his eyes at me and gave me a yeah, you will fail look. someone supersized like me had to make a decision to get well or lie to myself and the doctor and say yes i will do whatever it takes…that decision was mine to make…any WLS will only do so much
2 1/2 years later
i have done hospital seminars
been filmed 2 times for tv commercials
been in magazines
have a national blog w/awards
not bragging but i came from someone who couldnt wipe her ass
to where i am today…
whatever WLS you have, use it as the dr advises for best results
do the best you can, no excuses, no BS drama…and make yourself well.
each day that passes is one we do not get back.
we wasted enough…now time to get living..
