A former coworker of mine posted some pics of herself on a website. She was morbidly, I mean morbidly obese. I am also morbidly obese, but I looked thin compared to her. She had the most beautiful face.
She had lost about 85 pounds in about 2 - 3 months. She is looking amazing. I asked her how she did it. She had a right sleeve gastrectomy, where they removed 85% of her stomach.
I cannot even fathom that. She said she feels wonderful and it was the best thing she ever did for herself. You know, she had me thinking about getting gastric bypass surgery. I was researching the newest operative methods of this surgery online, etc.
No matter what, I did this before, and I can do this again. I am not getting the surgery, even if I have to stay big all of my life. I will try and try, and even if I lose just 5 pounds, at least it is a start.
P.S. She does look gorgeous though :)
