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.
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.
