I am new at this but I imagine will get the hang of it as time goes by.  I am 65 years old and fixing to undertake the journey of my life.  I have been overweight all my life.  My mother took me to a doctor when I was 10 years old and he put me on diet pills.  I was not severely obese at the time, just "chubby".  That was the start of a lifetime of yo yo dieting with weight off more on, etc.  After many years of this, 3 kids, stopped smoking, surgeries, and slowed metabolism, my weight has gotten up to a high of 274.. I am only 5ft 2 and prefer short and fluffy other than morbidly obese.  I have been working on the carbs etc for almost a year and down to a steady 245 -249. Cant seem to get any lower.  As with many of you, I have a few health issues, have already had a total knee replacement, vertebral fusion in my neck, rotator cuff and bicep repair, etc.  I am at the age of rebuilding the body.  lol.. I am scheduled for VSG March 11, 2015 and am both very excited and nervous.  So, hi, here I am.
