Final Option for a better life

Hi My name is Jesus Vazquez  and from the day I was born I have been overweight. Up until a few years ago i didn't know why I was overweight and always struggled to lose any amount that I could. Most would think I am looking for the easy way out or am not willing to fight for what I want. Well this is my story, anyone who knows me knows how much effort i put into working out and trying to at least maintain what control I have left. What people don't know is my issue is medical and not the stereotype answer of eating too much food. I have been in over 24 different weight loss programs, diets, and medications to try to beat this issue. But bottom line is I have been told by several doctors that Gastric is my only hope. I have tried endlessly to prove them wrong but it gets to the point that I am 31 years old and although I'm  healthy in cholesterol levels , blood pressure, and cardiac stability, the one thing my body won't do is get smaller. I want to do this surgery and weight loss to, for once in my life be able to enjoy it without limitations. Anyone who really knows me, knows i will not be told I cannot do stuff because of my size, but honestly there is limitations to that, such as weight limit and body size, I want to one day find someone and fall in love and maybe even have kids but most of all take them on roller coaster rides and to Disney and actually ride with them. Or go on a zip line with friends or sky dive or just be able to go to a baseball game of football game without having to squeeze into a seat that most fine comfortable. I know it is a hard journey a head but I want to try this and if you can help me achieve it weather its $1- $5 -$10  or just a simple sign of encouragement and understanding that this is not me being lazy but more so me trying everything I could and now having to listen to my doctors and taking a chance to live a better life. Thank you guys and if you don't agree with this approach just ignore it and move on save your comments an know I still love you I just don't want to hear it.
