I have always been "chubby" and when I lived in Asia at the age of 24  I even managed to get down to a svelte 136 pounds! But after marriage, 4 kids and a very sedentary job (oh yeah---and lots of snacks and rich meals) I found myself weighing a little  more than 215 pounds. I know that is lightweight compared to many people who have sought WLS but I could feel the pounds creeping up on me slowly but surely and I could never shed them! I just kept getting bigger and bigger. I knew in my heart that within another 5 years I could easily be more than 250---maybe even close to 300. At first I thought WLS was a drastic measure (which it is to a certain extent) but once I started to research it I never went back on my decision and I definitely do not regret it at all.
