My name is Rosemary, I am a 29 year old mother of 1 sweet little girl. i had Gastric Bypass on 8/8/14. i have since lost 27 pounds, I chose to have WLS because I was tired of being in this fat body and because I wanted to be healthy. I want to be able to live a long life so that I can be there to watch my daughter grow. I wanted to be able to have energy for my child and did not want her to remember mom as fat and lazy. In addition, I was overwhelmed with the diseases that I have such as DM, HTN and high cholesterol. i have since been taken off my metformin but continue on my htn and high cholesterol meds but hope to be off those soon. I found bariatric pal while searching for a support group outside of fb. I hope to learn from others experiences and share my journey along the way <3
