Beginning Weight Loss Journey

Well, my journey begins with me trying to conceive. My hubby and I have tried to get pregnant for about six years now. I was diagnosed with PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) at age 17. This is when the weight issue begins for me. However, I was never that big but a little overweight. Anywhoo, I went to meet with a infertility specialist and of course what was the first thing she says...."Mrs Caldwell, you are overweight"....I'm like duhhhhhh, as if I didn't know that. So she goes on to ask me if I ever thought about weight loss surgery. HMMMMMMM.......Nope!!! So she made me an appointment to take the class to see if I was interested. Well, i went to my first meeting on Oct 23, 2012 and I have been doing all of the Prep-Op things every since. On that day I was weighed in at 255.12 (wow). I have high blood pressure along with the PCOS and the obesity. Well, this is the same day that I decided that it is time for me to become a healthier person and a better me. If I want to have a child then I need to be HEALTHY....well, I am on the way to that and I am happy to be on this journey!!!!!!
