Hi! My name is Janette and I live near Rochester, NY. I have had a weight problem / food addiction since my teens and since I had my kids I've been over 200 pounds and gradually getting heavier and less active.

I had bypass surgery on February 24th 2014 so I'm getting there - 3 months out. Everything went well with the surgery - no complications, but I was permanently starving hungry all the time - very depressing and not what I signed up for at all. I made it through the pureed and soft food stages and so far haven't had many problems (except dry or dense meat) - starting to add foods one at a time. Glad to have found this website - will use you all for support and to ask questions.
