Bio
I am married and a mother to 4 wonderful children, including a wonderful son in law. After being overweight for most of my adult life as well as childhood I opted to have gastric bypass surgery in 2004. I realize this is not a choice for everyone, non the less it was a choice that I made and lost 160 pounds. I do not regret having the surgery. My regret is that I made choices in my life that put me at such a high weight. I know that I was/am an emotional eater as well as a stress eater. I would have thought that after I reached my goal weight everything would have been perfect. It wasn't. One thing was that I did not maintain my goal weight the proper way. I thought that I knew how, just eat 1/2 of what I had previously eaten. Makes sense right? Well that was the wrong way to go. I slowly began gaining weight back and thought that I could control the weight gain by skipping meals, and then only eating 1/2. 10 pounds became 15 then 20. Eventually I stopped weighing myself because it was so frustrating. I continued trying other diet ideas but was not having success. Eventually I gained back 40 pounds. This was not acceptable. I thought what am I going to do, this was really starting to weigh heavy on me. I couldn't let myself get back to being obese. I knew I couldn't let myself but I did not know what to do. I also know how important exercise is, but about a year ago I began having problems on both sides of my hips, walking, bending, and most movement became painful. Eventually I was searching for a home-based business to supplement my income to help with some medical bills and to have some "mad" money. I came across one by the name of Belly Busters Diet. To make a long story short, I became a client with Belly Busters as well as a consultant. I was thrilled because BB had a diet especially for me a gastric bypass graduate. If BB could help me then I know it could help others.
