- Wedding: July 2014
So, I’m in a dilemma.
I’m contemplating getting bariatric surgery. I’m severely overweight/obese. My wedding is 7/18/14. I have yet to try on my wedding dress because it was only a size 10 at the store, so it was placed up against me. I get my dress in in December.
Anyway, I have health issues such as swelling of the feet/legs. I eat protein and veggies. I have endometriosis, removal of ovarian cysts, hypothyroid and hormonal issues. I work out 4-5 times a week and eat veggies and protein. I have significantly cut down on bread, pasta, and rice. However, no matter what I do I can’t lose weight. For instance, last saturday I was down 4 pounds then on wednesday I was up 6. I have a wonderful personal trainer who is a great support and we try a lot of different things.
At this point in the game, which I’ve been dealing with since 2011 I just keep getting bigger and bigger. I don’t know what to do. I really am on the fence of getting surgery, but am going nuts with all this weight ESPECIALLY with all the changes.
My endocrinologist has suggested surgery, but I’m scared. What should I do? What about pregnancy in the future? My fiance is fully supportive of whatever choices I make. He just wants me to be happy as he sees I am not. IN fact, he gets mad because he sees me trying and making all of the changes and getting no results. I just want to look beautiful in my dress, but how can I when nothing is working and no one knows what is keeping me from losing weight!
Any ideas/support/suggestions would be great!
