Basic Information

About melissa.merrill23
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I am a mother first and foremost. My son Tyler is 7 and is the love of my life. Ive been through many tough trials through life and have come out ahead each time. The next one to conquor is my weight! I started gaining after hurricane Katrina and my son was born 9 months later. My life seemed to spiral out of control at that time, the weights been going up ever since. I feel like the last few years have been a beautiful dream and the only thing left holding me back is this weight Right now i'm 5'9 and about 280 ( im guessing)
fishing, traveling, tanning, car shows, 4wheeling, mud riding, shopping, sports games.

I was serious as hell and started crying.At the time i felt she had no compassion for my feelings knowing my insecurities and the surgery, she knew i was planning was approaching.

My whole life i wanted to me a bridesmaid
