I have always battled with my weight for as long as I could remember. I would as a young adult become athletic and able to keep my weight off but as soon as I let up or slowed training; the weight eould just pile on. When I turned 47 I started having swelling and increase pain in joints and back. This caused me to slow exercising even more. By 50 years old I weighed more than my pregnant delivery weight. I was in constant pain, fatigued and depressed. I decided to do something about it. My best friend had a gastric sleeve in 2007 and felt amazing and looked amazing as well. So I started my journey. I have list 45 lbs and although I had a few set backs I feel so great and again have started to get back to exercising. No more pain, no constant hunger and best of all I eat great food just a very small portion. I'm happy.
