[i][font=georgia][size=3]Hello BariatricPal!![/size][/font][/i]

[i][font=georgia][size=3]Unlike so many others, I have [color=#800000]not[/color] struggled with my weight my entire life. Up until the age of 30, I was healthy and fit. I enjoyed a happy healthy life until I piled on the weight after the birth of my 2nd child. Both times, with pregnancy, I gained about 30 to 40 lbs. However, it quickly melted away with my active lifestyle. Once my son was born, MOST of the weight melted away. . .but I kept about 15 or 20 lbs. Wasn't so bad until it kept coming and coming and coming. Fast forward to now. . .over 100 lbs overweight and 40+ BMI.[/size][/font][/i]

[b][font=georgia][size=3]CURRENTLY: 5'3-1/2" / 246 lbs / BMI 42.8[/size][/font][/b]

[i][font=georgia][size=3]I've yo-yo'd a thousand times. I get on a diet and do well for the first month or even two. Then after that, I ease up on the regimen and it comes back PLUS.[/size][/font][/i]

[i][font=georgia][size=3]So, I began researching weight loss surgeries. At first, just kind of for my information only. Then recently, with surgery as my ultimate goal. Although I'm just beginning the journey, I'm excited at my anticipated potential.[/size][/font][/i]

[i][font=georgia][size=3]I have a surgery date of May 7, 2014. Can't wait - mixed emotions. . .but anxiously awaiting this new path in my healthier life journey.[/size][/font][/i]
