I need all support i can get because being a single Mom and weight over 500 lbs is hard enough, but my own mother who never support anything I did is say im taking the easy way by research to have weight loss surgery and saying I should eat more salads and exercise more. I don't she realizes how hard my life at my weight. I just need some support and encouragement going through weight loss surgery and get my life for me and my kids.

Good morning and welcome,

I'm pretty new here myself and I've spent months reading through many of the boards and articles, going years back on some. There are great articles that can help.

I'll also say that there are some users whose stories and history sound similar to what you're going through. Reading through their post history might help with some feedback and perspective. They started at similar weights and got some pretty good feedback and answers, though it looks like some of the forums aren't quite so active these days.

Check out posts by MetalHeadCHICK, Hockeymom87, and dragracingwife on the BMI over 50 forum. Hope this helps! Cheers.

You are not alone. There are so many like us.

May I make a suggestion? There's a book called WLS For dummies by Marina Kurian, MD. She's the surgeon who performed Al Rocker's surgery. It gives all the information regarding the different types of WLS (good and bad aspects), diets, what to look for in a surgeon, insurances, etc.

We were also recommended this book, but I didn't take it seriously. It might be worth a read, thanks.
