Too Fat to Donate?

So, today I went to register to be a bone marrow donor and was told I did not meet the weight requirements.   That is a complete bummer to me.  My friend, Stephanie died of Leukemia in 2005.  My wonderful stepson lost his mother from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006 being on the list is something that is very important to me.   I guess this is another reason for me to lose the weight!

I am not fat, I am just enlarged to show detail!

Went to meet with the surgeon yesterday.  SURPRISE! SURPRISE! My weight qualifies me for the lapband surgery!  Duh, doc! So, why did I have to pay you $25 to tell me what I already knew.  I know I am a candidate and I know I want it done.  So, now what??  Off, to pay a pyschologist to tell me once again I am qualified, thats another $75 just to hear I am fat! Geez, my wallet is thanking you! Seriously, no wonder the world is overweight! No one can afford to be skinny! You have to pay to out of your tail to get healthy food and you have to pay to hear from the doctor that you have to lose weight.  Oh well, I guess my savings will come when I can leave the plus size section and shop the clearance racks at normal stores!  Watch out world, I am going to do this!
