Have you ever considered doing liposuction?  

I chose to go through with liposuction at the suggestion of my doctor.  I don't know whether she suggested it because she truly believes in it, or because she received some kind of compensation for referring me.  I know I make my own choices and by doing so, it is my fault I chose to go through with the surgery.  However, I was feeling desperate!  I was working out like crazy, eating healthy (other than the beer!) and rapidly gaining.  Soon I was going to be 200 pounds and it felt as if there was nothing I could to do to stop it.  My life felt like it was spiraling out of control.  I was ashamed of my body and looking for a quick fix.  What a horrible feeling.  

Maybe not all liposuction procedures are as painful or unsuccessful, but mine was atrocious!  I had it done on my inner/outer thighs and stomach area.  It was one of the most painful experiences of my life.  I was on total bed rest for two weeks and my Mom literally had to wash me in the shower.  The first few days were so horrendous I could not even wipe myself to go to the bathroom.  I even followed doctor's orders, wearing the spandex shorts and velcro wrap to keep my skin tight.   While my friends were out having a great time on New Year's I was lying in bed crying from the pain.  Even after several months I was in too much pain to workout.  More so, it was evident nothing really had changed...other than the small scars from the liposuction to show for it.  I knew I was still on the hunt for a diet that would work for me and last long-term.

Why was Jenny Craig the right program for me?  Until tomorrow...
