I have always been over weight, even as a kid. I have struggled many years. I did weight watchers which I had some success but gained it back. I also tried many diets and failed. A few years back I had an injury which left me with 3 herniated discs and nerve damage in my leg. Since then, I gained an additional 60 to 70 pounds at my highest weight. Between all my aches and pains and becoming a new proud grandmother, it's time for a change. Two years ago I went through everything for gastric bypass surgery. However, I chose not to have it at that time because I didn't feel comfortable with the surgeon. I am so glad I made that decision, because that doctor is no longer practicing. After along time of research, I am so glad I found Dr. Julie Kim's office. It has been such a great pleasure. I'm sure I have a lot in common with everyone here. I am willing to absorb everything that I can learn from everyone and hopefully someone can learn from me.
