HI, my name is Donna and as you can see I live in Maine. A great place to live if you like the winter "not me",Hubbie loves it here though. I've had a weight problem all my life but got even worse as I had children. Gaining with each one and not loosing any after.
I had the Gastric Bypass surgery in 2005 and lost 125lbs.I didn't have any of the side symptoms that you hear about, never sick,no dumping syndrome. Needless to say as time went on I tried eating unhealthy things, a little bite here and there. Still only can eat small amounts at a time but was eating way to many snacks in between meals.
Gained back 50lbs over the last 2 years,it was gradual,knew my cloths were fitting different but tried to ignore the signs. I started on the Atkins plan on July 12 this year and have lost 22 lbs to date. This seems to be the right way for me to go. Still have a ways to go but will not let myself do that again. This WOE makes me feel good and have lots of energy. Wish me luck as I continue with this journey.
