I have fought with my weight off and on all my life. When I was younger and very active I was able to maintain a pretty healthy weight. I started having what they call conversion seizures 2 1/2 years ago that the meds to treat make you pack on weight in a hurry. I gained 36lbs in two months. I was unable to keep my job and then was diagnosed with RA which I have fought with joint pain all my life also. The combination of steroids and being unable to do any type of exercise I gained another 30 some odd pounds. I quit weighing myself....This year after I had met my out of pocket maximum I decided that I was gonna get healthy and start with the tool of the gastric sleeve. I had surgery 8/8/11 and I am working as hard as I can to drop off these pounds and accomplish my goal and teach my teens how to eat and live healthy. My daughter suffers from Type II diabetes and PCOS. I want to set a good example that a person can change.
