The day came and everything changed.........

I have never blogged before, but I think this would be the best way to be inspirational to those people who struggle everyday with being overweight, a sort f support group, a place where we can all share ideas, fears and solutions about being overweight, and a way to start to d something about it!!!!!!!!!Well I am going to introduce myself, my name is Alessia and I am 36 years old, since I was 16 years old I have been struggling with being overweight.I tried different methods to loose weight, I even had a surgery  back in December  2000 where I had my stomach stapled, but even that didn t work like I wanted to.In 2000 I was living in Italy where I was born, and after my surgery I started to loose a serious amount of weight, my starting weight was 400 lbs, and by the time I left Italy in july 2001 to come to Florida, I went down to 321 lbs.The change of country and eating habits had been a problem for me since I moved to the States.I still can remember the words of my surgeon when I had my stomach stapled, he told me "no matter how much I am going to reduce the size of your sotmach food intake, it wouldn t make any difference if I wouldn t have changed my way of thinking about food".After the surgery my actual stomach size it was the same of a yogurt cup, and of course at the beginning I was really scared to eat anything because I didn t want to feel sick.But little by little I start to feel comfortable with the new size of my stomach, maybe too comfortable, which start making no difference to me, because I start fall into the old esating habits.I maintained my weight for a whole year after the surgery, till I start messinhg up gaining weight and losing it I was feeling like a yo yo.Thank God I never went back to my starting weight of 400 lbs, but I didn t even successfully lost all the weight as planned.After 9 years of failures I think I finally got the solution to my overweight problem, and I decide to share it with you guys, who have my same problems and struggles every single day of your life with this disease which is OVERWEIGHT.So sit tight and enjoy this journey with me and together I ensure you WE WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE IT, from now on we will have a motto to share,anytime you feel down or anybody try to put you down due to your weight, keep repeating this to yourself,  I CAN DO IT, and you will see the difference.
