Jonah and I have talked it over extensively, and have come to an agreement. I am going to have weight loss surgery in the very near future. I have tried and tried to loose weight on my own and I have been unsuccessful. I received approval from my insurance company last week and my primary care dr. and my cardiologist are both 100% supportive of me having this surgery. The next one to sign off is my neurologist.

The doctors believe that a lot of my health problems will get much better, if not go away completely with the surgery/weight loss/exercise program. I have decided it is time to make myself a much better person than I am now. I am looking at having a much better quality of life with this change! I am hoping I may be able to come off of disability!! My PCP is very optimistic about that . I can't go on living like this. I have three children who depend on me every day and need a whole mom to be there for them and can do things with them.

I am doing this for me first, but also for my family. I want to be the way I used to be!

FI's sister had a gastric sleeve in April and she's down like 30 or so pounds already. She says it's a big adjustment in the beginning, but worth it. She's happier and feels healthier! Good luck with it all!
