I have been battling with weight since I had my first child 21 years ago. I've been at my current weight for 5 years and my health is starting to be effected by it. I'm on the, as my doctor says, vicious egg cycle. I have degenerative disk disease on very painful joints (shoulders and knees) and it's making exercise harder and harder if at all. I'm borderline diabetic, hypertension and now have a fatty liver. I have Sleep Apnea, hypothyroidism and Fibromyalgia which cause chronic pain. After many failed diets and exercise programs I'm looking into gastric surgery after my doctors recommendation of it.
I have 3 beautiful children and a wonderful husband who himself needs this as well. He's watching and observing my journey to see if it is right for him.
I've started a blog here to document my journey for those who would like to follow.
Thanks so much,
