I just turned 51 this year. I had lost about 50 pounds the first time before 2009 for my Halloween wedding. Went from an 18 to a petite 8, and it felt wonderful. Kept it off about a year, and 2010-2011 we started adoption process for a little girl. Got that finished and about 40-50 pounds came on with all that stress, and needed to loose for my 30th high school reunion. Did that and had lost even more weight. Kept it off for about two years. Then September 2014, no matter what I ate, what I didn't eat, how much water I drank or didn't drink, walking 10,000-15,000 steps a day didn't matter and now, three years down, I finally had to have a fight with my main doctor and get her to do the referral to the bariatric doctors to see me. My BMI was a little under 35 in the beginning of all of this, but now have had to put on an extra 20+ pounds just to get to above 35 with cormorbity of sleep apnea, now I am exhausted. Knees hurt, back is killing me, and having hard time getting up,out of the chair. My 5'3" frame can't handle 200 pounds. I just want to start the process now!!!!
