Hi, my name is Joanna, and I'm fat.
(Hi joanna)
I have been fat for about 4 years now. It started with some unsuccessful pregnancies. Two of them. I gained 40 pounds with the first and almost another 40 with the second one that happened less then a year later. But now I have this beautiful little boy, Ocean, who is 5, and although he slightly added to the weight issue I couldn't be happier because I have him from it. I have a beautiful little girl, Lilyanna, who is 2! My kids are the best things in my life. I wouldn't trade anything in the world, even being skinny, for them. They give me a reason.

I am seeing that my weight has much less to do from having kids and much more from my love of food, but I am slowly changing my control over that :D I have big career ambitions but have felt under qualified and had major lack of confidence to pursue bigger and better things. I love to exercise, but I also love to eat.

On March 16th, 2011 I had weight loss surgery. The vertical sleeve gasterectomy in fact. And it was one of the best choices I have ever made. I was down 27 pounds in one month and have been slowly losing weight non-stop since. It changes nothing except I can fit less food. I still have to make the right choices on what to eat and exercise and hold myself accountable. I know that this struggle WILL get easier, and within the next year I WILL be at goal weight.
