I have been overweight all my life. I thought it was just a thyroid problem, genetics, way of life, I made excuses, family made excuses, even as an adult excuses were made. I was tired of it.
I realized it was me when my husband of 3 years became overweight. When we met he was actually underweight. In 4 years he is tipping obesity.
I have Ankylosing Spondylitis and the extra weight only hurts my joints more. I am hoping this will help my pain and make me healthier.
We want to start a family and I have seen what morbid obesity can do to both the mother and the baby. I want to eliminate as many complications as I can.
