    Hi, my name is Grace and I am a stay-at-home mom. I have 3 girls, ages 20, 14 and almost 13. I am also a student finishing up my Bachelor in Psychology degree, graduate Dec. "10. I will be moving on to my Masters of Clinical Counseling Psychology, hopefully, in Jan. "11. I have been married for 15 yrs, Aug. 11th, to an Army soldier.

    As I stated above, I'm in school. I am taking Psychology: Testing and Measurements this term. My term assignment is to construct, name, administer and evaluate a psychological test. I have chosen to do my test on the emotional effects of Obesity and Weight Loss. I am looking for 2 groups; adults, male or female, for both groups, in addition, group 1 will need to consist of people with a 100+ pounds to lose, and for group 2 people who have lost 100+ pounds. I would love to have people who have lost, or are in the process of losing, their weight through weight loss surgery or diet and exercise alone, or any combination/method. The test consists of a questionnaire with approximately 50 - 55 questions and should take less than 20 min. to complete. The survey is completely anonymous.

    I also started an online journal to tell about the test/survey I'm working on, my own weight loss journey (never know the direction that goes day to day), any information I learn on obesity, weight loss, nutrition, etc., and hopefully others will be interested in telling of their own journey. I think this will be helpful to others, and in the end ME. In trying to help others, you always help yourself.

    For anyone interested

    Here is the link to the survey:

    Hi TN,

    Sorry about the delayed response. I seem to stay crazy busy lately. So, I'm guessing that you've had your surgery. I hope all went well and you're recovery will be as smooth sailing as possible. Please let me know how it went.
