Goodmorning,
My name is Annie Adams and in 1998 I was at my highest weight of 680lbs.
Life was misrable.
I was also diagnosed with type 2 diabetes along with a multitude of other comorbid conditions.
Having the diagnoses of diabetes was what I needed to start getting my life back.
I managed to loose 300lbs on my own with diet and excersie and got out of a horrible relationship.

I started to feel better and better than I had ever felt and was able to do many more just normal daily things I was not able to do at 680.

Three years ago my PCP said to me she was very proud of what I accomplished but knew I wasent where I wanted to be with my weight.
She encouraged me to look into weight loss surgery.
The thought of surgery was very scarry and something I never gave much thought too.

I finally made up my mind I was going to look into surgery and on August 1st I had RNY surgery and I have been given my life back.
My diabetes has been in remission one week since surgery and I can walk my dogs everyday now.
My life has changed so much and I cant even begin to express how wonderful it is for me.

I really would like to share my story in hopes that I can touch someone else who is super morbid obese.
I have lots of pictures of my weight loss journey.
To this day I can
say I have lost 411lbs.

I have a great passion to help others and give hope to those who feel there is no hope.
