As a child I was never heavy until I hit age 12 and that's when my PCOS (policystic ovarian syndrome) kicked in. PCOS is the number one leading cause of infertility. I went from 110 pounds to 298 in 1 1/2 years. My doctor even said that there's nothing that I could have done to stop from gaining the weight. I bulked up like a guy because of it. My husband has always loved me the size I am but I haven't been happy with myself for awhile. In September 2011 I decided to go for bariatric surgery but I started off wanting Lap Band and just recently changed my mind to going for gastric bypass. I have a beautiful 4 1/2 year old daughter and my husband and I do want more children but I need to lose weight first. In September 2011 I weighed 315 pounds. I went through the process of going for Lap Band surgery but then they changed my surgery to Gastric Bypass. I had my surgery date for August 3, 2012. My anxiety kicked in and I canceled it 3 days before surgery. I had gotten down to 240lbs whiche everyone thought was awesome but they didn't know the truth as to how I got that low. I was literally starving myself to make sure I didn't gain weight before surgery. I was only eating 300 calories a day. Then on October 12, 2012 I lost my grandma. I could always talk to her about everything. I ended up gaining some weight back then on January 12, 2013, exactly 3 months to the day that my grandma passed away, I found out I was pregnant with my son. I was actually pregnant with twins but I lost his twin at 7 weeks. My PCOS symptoms got a lot worse after having him and by September 2014 I weighed in at 330lbs. I started eating healthy again and I was able to get down to 290lbs but I've been stuck at this weight for 5 months now. Now I'm looking into Lap Band surgery or Gastric Sleeve. My husband and I want 1-3 more kids. I have to wait 18-24 months after surgery before we can try for another baby and that's okay. I'm going to be trying my hardest to get down to 150-160 pounds. I'm excited and nervous and anxious about surgery but I can't wait
