So after much soul searching and thought I have decided to go under the knife, literally, and have weight loss surgery. I have started this blog so I can provide updates and pictures to my friends and family who are interested in following my process.
I will be traveling along with my sister on 11/14/2010 to Mexicali, Mexico to have the surgery done. Yes it is a safe hospital with a great doctor and I personally know three people who have gone there and had great success.
I feel like I have always been in control of most aspects of my life and I am proud of my accomplishments. The only thing I feel is holding me back is my weight, which continues to climb since the death of my mother in May, 2009 and my quiting smoking in September, 2009.
Now that I have completed my bachelor's degree and am working on my Master's and looking for work as a Crime Scene Investigator I think it is time to take this leap. I feel it will help me in my business and personal relationships and make me more available for my kids and grand kids.
So if you are interested in my story feel free to follow. I will be posting photos with weights starting soon and then keep posting all the way to size 8 :)
