Hi, my name is Beth and I hail from Wisconsin. As you can see from my before and after pics, I used to be very obese, morbidly obese in fact! Then at the suggestion of my doctor and after much pondering, I had gastric bypass on September 21, 2009. It is by far the best thing I ever could have done for myself! I am using this surgery as a tool to help me attain permanent weight loss as there is no magical cure. As powerful as surgery is, you still need to do your part. In addition, I'm a Zumba and swimming addict. I can and will reach my goals, no matter how long it takes! I'll never stop trying!

A little more about me...I got divorced on January 4th, 2016 and it was the best thing I ever did for myself!! I also have many hobbies and interests such as green/organic eating and living, dancing, calligraphy, oil painting, reading (my favorite author is Stephen King!), writing, organizing, music, playing the Wii, Xbox and video games in general, clothes, fashion, anything related to beauty, and photography. I also love spending time with my friends and enjoy spiritual studies and meditation.
