Hello I am Tammy Franks and I weight a lot ..My BMI is 70 .so anyone who knows about weight and BMI's Knows How big that is.I had a colonoscopy and an EDG (upper scope ).The doctor found 4 to 5 polyps.They did not think it was cancer....but do think it's celiac disease.Which means my love affair with bread is over...:( The next thing I want to do is the gastric sleeve.I will post what that is and how it is done. If this works I should lose 100 to 200 pounds this next year.I want to document my progress ,maybe it will help others to do the same.I also have done every diet know to man short of wiring my mouth shut. I hope I show people just how bad it gets and how wonderful life can be.I have 2 children and a wonderful husband.I don't want to lose them or for them to lose me.I am 47 and use to be very active.Now I have a hard time just going to the store or buying groceries,clothe shopping is a thing of the past,because it's to hard to walk all over the mall or stand and try on clothes for me or the kids. some things I can not do: 1.sit in most chairs at doctor's offices . 2.walk for more then 15 mins 3.stand for more then 30 mins 4.ride in cars I have to drive because there is more room on drivers side. 5.dance 6.make love like I use too. 7.go to flea markets 8.go to parties ( I never know if I can sit down or where to sit down) 9.church because I have nothing nice to wear. 10.my son's school to help out(stairs) many many more things I can't do but these hurt my heart and soul the most!!! Losing weight is the most important thing in my life right now !!
