My story has always been a struggle, especially when it comes to weight. I was born fat. My mother put me on a diet when I was a baby cause she thought I was too. fat. When I look at myself, then, I really was just a normal healthy kid. But my first diet was skim milk instead of formula. I was the chubby kid in school. I was "fat" in high school. I went from 165 to 115 all with the help of amphetamines. I looked like a twig when I started nursing school. But, I always thought fat, fat fat I met my husband and got married at the ripe age of 20-size 12 140 pounds. It was a roller coaster with three babies in 5 years. As a nurse, I saw a lot of people with by-pass for weight loss where they would have really bad dumping. It was scarry and kept me away form that for a long time. I did almost everything. I did a protein liquid diet with a doctor, I did Weight Watchers (I'm a lifer!) so many times. I did pills and more pills. Dr. Verseman came to town about a year and a half ago. He is a knight in shining armour... He finally understands all this and I promise to follow directions to the letter. CAFFIENE will be really hard as I love coffee.....
