Hello....I am from India.57 yrs old...have been plump from childhood...got arthritis at the age of 40. it became worse in 10yrs, due to lack of activity, stress and personal problems.

I used to be around 180 lbs but in 2009 I broke my leg ligaments and weight increased to 200 lbs. I became depressed.was not interested in going out, wearing good clothes.

In 2011 when I had gone to Melbourne to visit my daughter I took the decision of the lap band.

I was operated on 14th march 2011.I lost 10,12 lbs in the first month. Doe to my arthritis i cant walk much, am not very active.

So the weight refused to come down. In India we dont have many options for non veg food, so I was not eating enough protein.

I want to have a knee replacement but it will not be so successful unless I loose more weight. So i had liposuction for thighs and hips.

I lost 10 lbs but I am now putting on.
