I have gone back and forth with diets and excerise programs for the last few years, but i can't seem to shake this weight. i am now about 115 pounds overweight and i am scared as hell. I used to be strong and fit, but marriage, a job, and 2 kids have turned me into a blob. i am considering bariatric surgery. I have already completed the mandatory 6 month diet program and lost a whopping 15 pounds. I have decided to make one more attempt at weight loss on my own but I am not doing so well. I have joined a gym and have been taking cycling classes, but the results are not as good as i'd hoped. I have seen friends succeed and fail at the weight game, and I guess I am just looking for some advise and a different perspective.
