Weight Loss Surgery, One Woman’s Quest
I’ve struggled with my weight since I stopped swimming competitively in college, but failed to stop carb loading and eating as much as my brothers. Raised in the 1970s and 1980s, we ate white bread and butter, meat and potatoes, and dessert every night.
By the time I married an executive chef and had two children, my poor eating habits were well established. I cycled through different diets through the years – Weight Watchers, Atkins, Herbalife – and each helped a little bit until I hit a plateau, got frustrated and gave up. Any pounds lost were regained, along with a few extra each time.
