23 Yr Old Step Daughter Having Gastric Bypass Today!!!
I am concerned bc I so don't think she is a good candidate,she had lost approx 25 lbs while living with us about 2 1/2 yrs ago,bc I had the right foods in the house and she ate 4-6 small meals a day. She walked,swam and was doing well,then she went to live with her mom for awhile and she & I both felt she was sabatoghed?? She now has a 18 month old and weighs about 300 lbs,her eating habits are terrible and she never excercises. She was at our home 2 days ago was eating what her son didn't eat (mashed potatoes,beef,gravy,carrots& yorkshire pudding),she was doing it secretly,or trying to. I am concerned that she will not succeed and will just go back to her same habits.She is engaged and her fiance' and her both love to cook and bake. I think she feels this is a quick fix and hates to excersise so I guess I am venting bc I think this is a waste of time and I am concerned for her health.Has anyone else had a child/friend or yourself that has had this done and how did they manage it,and did they fail or succeed? Looking forward to a response?
