[i][size=3]My Story,[/size][/i]

[i]I'm now 44 years old and I live in America with my fantastic american husband John, who I met when I lived in England eight years ago. I had just left my then husband of 14 years, and was struggling to raise my twin girls alone, without any help and my life was a little complex to say the least. I was also recovering from having my 3rd tumor removed, and dealing with PCOS syndrome.. My weight had been on the rise for years, but I managed to keep it slow and steady with the help of a lot of walking. Since my move to America it has just gone out of control, I thought learning to eat all the new foods would be a challenge for me, I was wrong, it was more of a challenge than I ever dreamed of. I had never heard of of so many of the foods here, and had to try them all, I was 42 when I ate my first ever waffle lol[/i]
[i]Anyway, I am here now and have learned to cope a little, but the weight has piled on and now I suffer, I should of just called my self Serena Carb Lover, le sigh.. I cant seem to loose the weight and keep it off, as I get older it is getting harder, my self respect is prolly at an all time low and I hope this operation is going to be the perfect tool to help be back on track towards a brighter slimmer me.[/i]

[i]I found lactose free almond milk this week, and as I am on my pre op diet I am delighted to not have stomach cramps from drinking protein shakes at long last lol every little helps. In 18 days I am due to have my VGS sugery it was a lot of testing and poking to get this far.. 6 months of weight loss check ups and downs endoscopic surgery, mammogram, well woman clinics, support groups and a bit of cash ... prolly a lot more to if I think about it but I dont want to send you to sleep reading this lol[/i]
[i]I hope to get to talk to people that have been through what I have been through as I often feel like I am shooting in the dark, should I take this, where can you get that, so many questions and no answers yikes!![/i]
I also hope that I may be of help to anyone that needs it, I dont have many answers my self, but hey if I know I will be more than happy to share...

well time to hush my self up now, thank you for being here, feel free to message me...
love Serena xoxox
