I was a chubby baby and all my life. I was thin (size 9) for about 5 minutes in my life. I have tried everything and would lose about 20 lbs and then gain 30 back each time... I am in the health care field where obesity is the bad guy along with smoking. I am always the largest person in the room and i am so embarrassed!! My life and job is very stressful which does not help.
I finally decided to look into WLS and realized I NEED this TOOL!! I went through the steps easily and can't believe I will start 2013 finally achiieving the impossible!!!
This site has been very helpful in my research and a big thank you to all. Thanks for all your sharing!!!
