I am 55 years old and have done the yo yo dieting all my adult life.  I had had gastro surgery in 1995 and had severe problems with reflux.  Unfortunately had to have a revision.  With having severe back problems I can do a lot of exercising.  I have a simulator placed in my spine so jogging and sit ups are out.  After having a revision I gradually gained all my weight back.  5'3" and 245 lbs.   As of November 21, I have 5 grandchildren.  First and foremost I want to be healthy for myself and my husband, but also so I can be here and active with the grandchildren.  I want to be able to comfortable and hopefully it will help my back so I can cut back on taking pain medication.
I have a very stressful job and am not happy, but love my profession.  I am an emotional eater.
