Hello, I am a mother of small children and happily married for about 12 years.  I am tired of accepting being size 18!  I have high blood pressure and never really feel that "great" because I am always carrying around these extra pounds.  I have been successful with other diet plans, but inevitably the weight comes back on.  I am fortunate enough that my road to surgery has gone quite easily and thankfully have not gotten any resistance from my Insurance company.. the only clitch is, I do not get a to stay a night in the hospital.. which will be interesting with kids at home!  My only concern is the two week pre-op diet which I start on Friday the 20th!!  Otherwise we are good to go and look forward to learning all I can from other members of this blog!
