I am a 33 year old wife and mother to 4 children, including Toddler boy triplets. I am a stay at home mom and love my life; just not myself! *but am working on it!
My weight gain came with my children; 10 years ago via pregnancy, ppd, then recently from 3 years of fertility therapy and triplets. I am 100lbs heavier than I was when I conceived my first child... and was overweight then!
You would think with a busy life of chasing 3 toddlers, that I would be much more fit! I have PCOS, which is a metabolic disorder related to insulin resistance, and can inhibit (not prevent) you from having weight loss success. WLS is a great tool for women with PCOS, even if there is still a struggle.
I overcame the fertility issues with medical intervention... so with science and Drs as my allies, I will overcome obesity too!
Wish me luck!
