I had a breast reduction in November 2012 and tummy tuck in March 2013. I've tried every diet possible to lose weight, but find myself heavier than before the above 2 surgeries that cut and sucked probably 20+ lbs. off me. My weight is approx. 240, BMI 39, I'm 5'5" and will be 60 years old... READ MORE

I grew from a fit teenager to a fat 22 year old and became a processed food junkie and couch potato. I later developed diabetes, celiac disease, depression, acid reflux, asthma, and hypertension. I was in my 30s, morbidly obese and on ~10 prescription medications. Since 2003 I've maintained... READ MORE

I have been overweight all of my adult life. Had surgery in Portsmouth, NH, Dr. Kevin Looser. The program was very thorough and I felt like I knew what I was getting into. Dr. Looser was wonderful.

I start my 6 month program in December with my first dietician visit. I have to say, I am somewhat apprehensive, but I can be a very determined person, so here's hoping I can prove it! lol! I have PCOS and insulin resistance at 29 years old, and come from a long line of diabetes and... READ MORE

I have been overweight all my life. I weigh 208 now, but I am hoping to get down to 110 after my surgery. I am looking forward to losing the weight, but I am scared that I will have an "apron" afterwords, because I have a large stomach now. I will post pictures as I lose the weight. I will post...

It was a very scary decision to make. But I would recommend it highly to anyone over 100 lbs. over weight.

I weighed 10 pounds at birth, slimmed up as a small child and then started being overweight at the age of 9. So for most of the past 60 years, I have carried around too much weight. When I was younger, I thought I was in the "Fat but Fit" category. In the past few years, my weight has... READ MORE

Although I had a minor complication I would still do the surgery again. I have always had weight issues my entire life and this was the only solution that has allowed me to maintain my weight for a long period of time. Otherwise I was gaining weight every year exponentially. I lost about 76... READ MORE
