My weight loss journey

Hello! I am an obese person in recovery thanks to having a gastric bypass in 2002. I lost 115 pounds, gained back 25, and now have lost all but 10 pounds of that. I will never give up the fight against my propensity for obesity! Neither should you! Together, we can be successful in the journey towards even better health.

Fitness Minutes: 10,596

My Goals:
My goal is to get back to my post surgical weight first, and then continue on from there to get my BMI into a healthier range.

My Program:
I will never, EVER, give up. I keep on trying different approaches until I reach my goals. I am worth it...and so are YOU!! If I can do it, you can too!!

Other Information:
I am the bariatric manager for Morton Plant Mease in the Tampa Bay area. I had wls-roux en y in 2002 and I would love to tell you that this was the beginning that led to a smooth transition. For me, however, the journey is never smooth...but isn't that the definition of a journey in the first place? Is it not riddled with a plethora of ups and downs? The beauty of a rocky transition, however, is that we have many opportunities for mental and spiritual growth along the way. Now, I want to share my experiences with my patients and friends.
