2008 lost 240 pounds, 2012 gained 100

Had been atleast 300 pounds my entire life, well since high school. I thought I would be happy. I wasn't. I looked old. Skin hanging, turkey waddle, tons of wrinkles in my face. I looked at my twin who was well over 300 pounds but all I saw was smooth skin. People asked if we were mother and daughter. I returned to my old comfort, Food!!!! The weight went on fast! I have worked through my issues with my looks, I think, now need to kick my old friend food to the curb! I am back with Sparks and ready to begin again!!!!

My Program:
I had gastric bypass on 2/21/08. This was not an easy decsion and is by no means a quick fix. I came the surgery great . I lost 240 pounds but lost my identity. I am finding myself and ready to lose the 100 pounds I have gained, and learn to love the things that I can do with a smaller body and not worry about my wrinkles and sagging skin. My power comes from in and I am going to grab that golden ring

Personal Information:
I am an identical twin, oldest, and native south floridian. I have been overweight my whole life and know this is finally my year to take control of my health!

Other Information:
I am a trivia junkie!!! if you ask me what I wore yesterday I have no idea, however if you need to know who sang the Night Chicago Died, I am your girl!!!!!! I also like going to the beach to listen to live music, movies, going out with friends.

Girl! I read your post from .. Nov 16th? It was about your shrinking body, expanding skin.. and feeling totally out of sorts.
Email me, Hunny-- if I can't help I can at least make you laugh!
