well i am no stranger to the forum. last year my journey started, was weighing in at my highest 295pds. my highest weight was 310. then i signed up for the gym. and i went down to 245pds. then i decide to have surgery at thomas jefferson hospital Dr. Beakley. surgery date was for july 2011. but then i called it off listening to all the negativity from some family and friends. then was not comfortable with my surgeon. although all my doctors are at thomas jefferson university. i just felt like the program was fairly new i wanted someone who had more experience. so with that being said here i am trying it again. But this time feeling much better about my decision. and yes i put on more weight now and im miserable with it. but i have started back at the gym and now i have more support from my family and friends. wow skip over lil abot me. well im a mother of 3 and grandmother of 1 grandson. i am 38yrs old. i live in philadelphia,p.a. i have been struggling with my weight most of my life. im at the point i just want to be healthy and able to enjoy life. im just ready for a change!!
