I have struggled with my weight for most of my adult life. Just like everyone else I have tried everything and spent hundreds of dollars. I am almost 41, married and have 3 beautiful children, ages 11, 7 and 4. I love my kids more then anything, but I do not have the energy to be a real mother, and you can amagine the guilt that brings. I am seeing my surgeon for the first time on Dec 6th and hoping that I will have my surgery by the end of January or sooner. I have no drawback, but a lot of questons.
