Hi this is the first time I have posted on this site.  I am a 44 yr old female tired of being obese.  I have always had a problem with weight, but it seems like the last ten years have been the worst.  I am married and have two wonderful kids.  I would love to be more fit so I could enjoy activities with my family.  I have been researching WLS for the last six months.  I have tried every diet and been successful, but only to regain.  My last two diets have not been successful.  I need help.  I am nervous about WLS but I know that is is working for others and am hopeful it will work for me.  As an RN when I worked in the hospital I did not have problems loosing weight, but now that I have a desk job the weight won't come off.  I am inspired by the stories on OH and hope my outcome will be the same.  I have a twin sister and she is going through the same process as me.  We have 1 1/2 months of dieting to complete before our insurance will consider the surgery.  I suspect we will both be approved.  We are a great support to each other and it helps to go through this with someone else.
