I wasn't an overweight kid. Or teenager. I started gaining weight when I was about 24, and it got very out of hand very quickly. After I had my two boys, forget it.
I've tried everything from Jenny to Weight Watchers to hypnosis. HYPNOSIS, for cryin out loud!!
My very supportive husband wants me to be healthy (not thin, healthy) and decided that it would be an investment to put out the money for the surgery. Our insurance won't cover it. He's the best!

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a group of "friends" on this site to connect with. We all know what the other is dealing with, and that is an invaluable recourse!
