My Journey

I'm a classic yo-yo dieter. I've been up and down the scales since I was 14 years old; starting at size 5 and slowly increasing to a 32 over the years. I am a professional dieter and know all about losing weight; it's KEEPING IT OFF that I can't seem to master!

My surgery date was April 9, 2009 and as of August 6, 2011, I have lost 190 pounds! Here it is 2015 and I'm happy to say I'm still maintaining...that's a first for me!

My health was deteriorating so I was in pretty bad shape by the time I had surgery. I'm thrilled to report I am out of the wheelchair, off all medication, riding horses and bicycles and having a great life, in general. WLS is a radical step, not to be taken lightly, but sometimes radical measures are required. I do not regret the decision!
