I am 25 years old and have been overweight since I was about 8. A few years ago I did Dr. Bernsteins and lost 115lbs, I stopped the injections and gained about 130lbs in just over 2 years! My highest weight was 338, lowest in the last 5 years was 193. I am currently at 315. (5'9) I joined weight watchers in January and am down 23lbs. It feels great to be loosing some weight again! In May 2010 I had a miscarriage at about 5-6 weeks. It was absolutely devastating to me. I'm honestly not surprised it happened tho. With being as over weight as I am, buying a house, getting married in a couple weeks, etc I was completely stressed out.
Another thing I am dealing with is that since my miscarriage I haven't had a period! (1 year in May!)
I have been thinking about the surgery and wasn't 100%. I know a few people of have gone through it with success, I also know someone who is a doc that has performed the surgery and the horror stories she was telling me scared me to be honest. But I look at it as there are so many people out there that go through the surgery and are completely fine!
My weight is paying a toll on my body. I am starting to get sore knees and ankles and feeling like I am alot older then I am. Something that's really important to me is having a family and I want that really badly but for me its so much more important to get me under control before worrying about a little one. Even if it means waiting an extra couple years!
