For the study, Stephansson and his colleagues analyzed 2,500 babies born between 1992 and 2009, whose mothers had all undergone weight-loss surgery. The babies were compared to a control group of 12,500 infants, whose mothers did not have surgery. Of the babies who had been born to moms who had undergone surgery, 5.2 percent were considered small for their gestational age as opposed to 3 percent of the babies born to moms who didnt have surgery.

Womans Time-Lapse Weight Loss Video Goes Viral I once broke a chair at my friends house, which was mortifying, and I even slept on the floor when we went away because I was so scared the bed wouldnt be able to take my weight, she said. She once skipped a relatives funeral because she couldnt make the long walk from the church to the graveside. That forced her to change her life.
