stormy Posted August 9, 2008 Report Share Posted August 9, 2008 I signed up here in Dec of last year. It took me until this last month to make up my mind about whether I wanted to do this. So many things on here made me take a look at my life. Tired of shopping and looking for another outfit again in size 20 and seeing all the people who are healthy and then to hear my dr tell me that I am at risk because of being fat. I had to make a decision. Everyday I came on here, reading how people are doing, understanding that things are a struggle. Now knowing this will not be easy, has made me understand that this is not a quick fix but a way of life. All of that said, I am saddened to see the site turn negative. In my opinion as someone who is not banded yet and who is scarred of what I will become. I want it all to stop. I need you guys. I know that I am not perfect, I may cheat, I may do things wrong. But I also know that this is about living, not dieing. I dont want to die. My son needs me and I need others like you to help me. I dont think I can do this alone. Please, whatever happened. Stop. How can I make you understand. We need eachother. So someone cheated, so what. If they want to wreck their band and be stupid, then that is their choice. I pray I dont do that, but like I said I am not perfect. I go for surgery on the 19th of Sept. I am scarred about the financing, the surgery. But what scarres me more than anything is to think that people like you, who I have seen grow and support eachother, wont be here to help me. If I dont do this, and do it right. I dont know what I am going to do. Please. I can't say enough, new people like me. We need you guys. Please stop whatever happened, forget it. Can't we start over?
