Reese's Story

I began my weight loss journey on November 11, 2009 - AGAIN. Fed up with my current health and weight, I decided to attend a seminar on LapBand. That is when I had the epiphany that I COULD succeed. I could get healthy and fit! And so, I set out to change my eating habits and my fitness level. I am on my way to a healthier me!
Update: On March 17, 2010, I had Lap Band Surgery. My hope is that it will help me control my hunger and food intake and be just one more tool to help me ...

My Goals:
After years of struggling, I am dedicated to a healthier lifestyle.
I am looking for Spark Friends that I can follow on their weight loss journeys - people who will motivate me and that are willing to work together on common goals - if you fit the bill please feel free to "friend" me and say hello!

My Program:
Following a 1600 calorie - low carb/high protein diet with the help of a dietician.
Following a 90 day program with my doctors in order to meet surgery requirements to have lap-band surgery.
Walking for exercise and working with hand weights for strenght training!
Update: March 17, 2010 - had lapband surgery with Dr. Collier, Conroe, TX. I am learning to eat in a whole new way!

Personal Information:
My name is Reese and I am from Houston Texas. I am 42, married to my husband Bill for 21 years (happily!) and we have 3 children (ages 23, 18, 13). I run my own pet care business and I enjoy taking care of animals and helping people.

Other Information:
My journey is just beginning...so excited to see where it will take me!
I LOVE animals - especially dogs!
I love watching crime shows...my favorites are Criminal Minds and NCIS.
I am a self proclaimed "chocoholic"...and possibly a "pepsiholic" - although I am "off" both now - and the soda's forever once I have my band in place!

Thanks so much for the nice comment on my photo. If your weight loss ticker is up to date, you are doing a GREAT job and we are only a few pounds from each other in actual weight. Keep up the amazing work you are doing - cheers to your success!
