And so it begins...

Welcome to my weight loss journey. I will have weight loss surgery on August 10th, 2011. I will be posting of my experiences during this time of change.

To those of you with more tender sensibilities, I will warn you that this blog WILL be crass but it will also be honest. I mean, look at the title...


  1. Nausheen sent me over since I'm trying to have the WLS too. I can't wait to see your journey and how it goes. Are you getting gastric bypass, lapband? What medical issues did you have prior to surgery? Did you, like me, want it for a decade? I'm sick of people telling me negatives when I bring it up. It changed my aunts life--she is like a size 10, when she was a size 28 before and is healthy for the first time in her life. I'll take the loose skin, to not have the pain, people looking at me weird, the snide comments, not being able to fit in airplane seats, or feeling judged everywhere I go. I'm willing to do anything at this point, since we can't even have kids now b/c of my weight. For the record, I'm 5'6 around 275 with a highest of 307. The lowest I got with working my ass off was around 240, and it was too easy to gain it all back.

  2. Nausheen mentioned to me about what an AMAZING step you've taken. I wish you the best of luck with everything. I hope the procedure went well. Looking forward to your updates
