I've been morbidly obese for as long as I can remember.
Dieting, exercising, eating right only worked for 10kgs and then I hit that plateau again.
The obesity lead to other problems, like PCOS and Type II Diabetes. I'm getting married in September and would really love to get my body right. Not only for the wedding, but also for having babies, as obesity and pcos, leads to infertility.
Unfortunately in South Africa the price of gastric surgery is excessive and very few medical aids cover it.
