Well, I am seriously considering weight loss surgery. I am 27, 270 pds. I have sleep apnea and severe back pain. If not for the health problems I wouldnt be considering surgery, but I am so tired of living with this pain, and not ever getting a good nights sleep. I cant even spend the night with a man because I am ebarrasesd by my snoring! lol. I think I am actually ready for this for the right reasons... not because I want to be cute and skinny for once in my life, but because I am sick of being sick. I want a better quality of life. It is just such a huge decision. I am so scared to tell my family, i know they would not be supportive. they think i havent tried hard enough on my own. But, they have never been able to lose the weight either. I guess I just need some support. I want o know that I am not crazy, I want to know that this might be a god choice. Once I talk to my Dr, what will be the next6 step? How long can this process take?

Its been two weeks and it did nothing for my lumbar ever... but it did seem to help my cervical and arm/hand pain...
