I am a wife and a mother of 2 boys (16 & 19). I also have a Shih Tzu named Toby he is like my 3rd son.I am employed full time as a teacher assistant at an elementary school. I enjoy card making,scrapbooking and making 3D paper projects. I have struggled with my weight most of my life. At one point I lost 87 lbs on my own with diet and exercise but in the end did not keep it off. I gained it all back plus some. So with a lot of research and a good long look at myself I had gastric bypass surgery on December 20th 2011. I am down 157lbs and am feeling great. However I have put on 16 lbs in the past year and I would like to get it off. I do not want to gain my weight back.

weight loss surgery
This is my first post. I was wondering if anyone has weight loss surgery? I have tried so many diets in the past. The most I have ever lost on my own was 87lbs but to no surprise I gained it all back plus some. I have finally decided to get gastric bypass on Dec 20th and it has been a blessing. Don't get me wrong it has been the hardest 9 weeks of my life but each day gets easier and easier. I am down 60 lbs. I still have a long way to go but now I feel like I have the tool to help me.
