This is my first post here... or in any WLS community, for that matter. My name is Woo & I'm in the early stages of researching WLS. I have every intention of having the surgery, but I know it's a lengthy process. Trust & believe, I plan to do my homework & educate myself as much as possible.
On the opposite end of the spectrum - or perhaps not - I'm a very proud Big Girl. Always have been. But, this weight is causing me problems it never did before, namely with my knees and ankles. I'm having a hard time reconciling my big girl pride with my desire for WLS. And this is what brings me here. Heck, I've never even mentioned this to anyone aside from my son & my therapist. Feels good - but scary - to admit it to others as well.
I don't know what I can add to the community at this point (aside from questions!), but I look forward to participating.
Thanks for reading,
