I have been a perpetual yo yo dieter my whole life. Before I was pregnant with my son, I had lost (on a very low carb diet) about 70 lbs.
Since he has been born ( over 3 1/2 years now), I have managed to put all the weight back and more.
I am probably at least 75-95 (gulp)pounds over my ideal weight. I am 5"3 and should be around 110-140.
A co-worker of mine had gastric bypass surgery a number of years ago and had lost over 100 pounds. So has Carnie Wilson... I have seen a lot of commericals lately from hospitals(Plantation General in FL)advocating this treatment.
Any thoughts, experiences, advise? I seem to be stuck at this weight no matter what I eat or don't eat. I have also taken to aerobic exercise and weight training. But the weight stays on. (I am also on 40 mgs Celexa and don't know if that contributes to weight gain.)
Sorry for such a long post. But I am really leaning towards this surgery as a permanant solution. My husband is adamantly against it.
Thanks so much!
