it seems as if my body and soul finally found eachother... that sounds strange I know. I have always been a person full of life and passion but the way I looked (very overweight) never showed that. I was lucky because after a while no one seemed to notice my weight but I did. In many little things as I realize now. My life changed.. now I am one with myself. I am so happy I did this. Who ever reads this don't be scared, it is worth it. You will be taken great care of... the first weeks are not easy but they go by and you will see... you will start a new life. Go for it, you have nothing to loose... only lots of weight and painful moments of sadness. Good luck.
