Three things about me:

I am very good at loosening weight, well I was until the past few years. Now I have to starve myself to make the scale budge downward, but gain 5 pounds if I have one indulgent meal. I have lost weight on Jenny Craig, Medifast, Weightwatchers Atkins.... really pick a plan and I tried it and lost weight then slowly gained it back plus a few bonus pounds.

My weight is not the sum of who I am. I am a retired public health nurse, a master gardener and urban farmer, I build custom dollhouses (time to order for 12/17!). I love cloths, especially lingerie, hate uncomfortable shoes and spend too much on skin care products. Most of all I am a mother of five boys (well, actually men, the youngest is 16).

I recognize that bariatric surgery is a serious decision. I did not choose it lightly. I am 11 days post op and have lost 12 pounds (plus the 5 pounds of water weight I gained in hospital. My main incisions much improved by a compression tank top. I took it off for a while yesterday...and OUCH!...maybe I'll wait a few days and try again. Today I feel hungry but not ravenous like I was earlier this week.
