Hello, my name is Mychel but you can call me Mikki. I had bariatric surgery back on July 12, 2011. I was 287lbs then and now weighing in at 220lbs. The surgery I had was the Gastric Vertical Sleeve. I was a size 22-24 but now depending on the clothes I can fit in from a size 16. Anyway, I am stuck at 220and I am supposed to be at 170. So figured I would try SparksPeople again.
My main goals is to get down to my normal weight. I was just recently diagnosed with an Auto Immune disease called Sjogrens Syndrome. I am currently on high dosages of Prednisone which is causing me to be hyper and hungry. Need to wean off this stuff so I can drop some weight.
I am still struggling going over my totals allowed for the day. But I do have to say that when I first tried Sparks People I went really over and then just gave up. Now I notice I am not that much over so its a challenge for me to get in my ranges and soon will be a goal.
My real name is Mychel Wetter but I like being called Mikki. I am from Secaucus, NJ which I was born and raised. I am married to Eric for almost 19years and I have a son who will soon be 18 and a daughter who is 14. I am a true-blue rocker 80's hairband metal head. I am thankful my kids like some of my bands unlike me who hated what my parents listened too...LOL. I am also Christian and attend Brookdale Christian Church in Bloomfield, NJ. I love God, but I am not a bible pushing maniac. I am not perfect or I would be able to walk on water. If you need a friend to vent to, or a stranger to vent to...you can say hello to me here or find me on Facebook as Mikki Chiccone-Wetter
As you can see by my pictures, I am a huge Stryper fan. I see them still every year when they come to BB Kings in NY. I have all 4 autographs. I love reading now. Currently I am reading Stephen Lawhead's books. Soon I will be starting the Lord of the Ring series and The Hobbit. Love my fairies, elves, kings, nights, wizards....so cool.

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
Hey Sparkfriend, I hope your week is going great so far. Make the most of each day as it comes, and choose to be amazing! Put forth your best effort....because you are worth it!

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy week, Spark friend! If you fall down, get back up and keep pushing forward. I hope you know that you're always worth your best effort...because you really are!

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
Its up to you to make your goals and dreams a reality, Sparkfriend! Take responsibility, and do your best each day to make progress. You are totally worth the effort, you know!
I hope your week has been great so far!

"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.
Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew -"

"Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out.
We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive!
Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories."
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy, happy week, Spark friend! Keep your goals in mind and keep pushing yourself every day to get closer. It isn't easy, but never forget that you are worth the effort!
