Hi! I just wanted to introduce my self. My name is Angela and I am a 37 yr old woman single woman who just had surgery 1 month ago today. I have no children of my own but I do have 2 step kids and 2 grandchildren. I work with developmentally disabled adults. Nine months ago I moved out on my own for the first time in my life. I went from my dad's house to my boyfriends house and lived with him for 7-8 years. I worked hard to get where I am today before I had surgery and I know all the classes I took to have surgery prepared me for what is in store for the coming months but I have found that some days I just struggle. I don't really get hungry but I still have the urge to eat. I walk 5 days a week for my exercise and try to get all my water and protein in but it is a struggle to get all my vitamins in sometimes. Don't get me wrong I am glad I had the surgery because I was so tired of being fat, but this is just a new struggle that I have to overcome. I am glad that I found DS because now I can ask others who are going through the same things as I am for help. Thanks Angela.
