A little bit about me...
Jun 21, 2009I am 58 years old and have been struggling with extra weight for 3 decades. I am the original "Yo-Yo Mom"
I am exploring the idea of lap band surgery, in fact writing a book on banding experiences. I am doing my last-ditch Weight Watcher effort, but am one of those unlucky persons that gains on 1200 calories a day.
I have a busy life- I still have 2 kids at home (3 if you count Hubby). I teach 1st Grade, write and research on a freelance basis, and spend lots of time serving as taxi for the kids. I am the mother of 5, have 6 beautiful grandkids and am somewhat of a loner. The Internet has set me free however, to reach out and find a community I feel comfortable in. I love ObesityHelp so far, and know I will feel supported while I research lap banding further.
Feel free to write. I'd love to chat!
