Welcome to Me :D! a mother of three academic juggling her dissertation, life, and weight loss
I decided to look into weight loss surgery after an extended family member close to my own age died of a sudden massive heart attack. :o  My weight had been steadily going up as I had gotten older; a little more with each child's birth and as the years went by. Dieting would result in some weight loss but eventually it would all come back plus another 10 or 20 pounds. I can confidently say I have tried every diet known to man. B) As my age increased with my weight so did the other health issues which are what I believe finally made it possible for me to qualify for surgery. My surgery is in early 2016 and it is why I am BabyNewYear on the boards. My chance to begin anew! Please follow me and wish me luck!  :rolleyes:
