Hi, I'm Anna. I love ALL kinds of good music. I'm an amateur singer/songwriter, actor, bellydancer with WAY too much belly.

I've done it all. Weight Watchers, LA Weight Loss, Nutrisystem, etc. and like 99% of anyone who diets, I gained it all back, usually plus more. I've finally absorbed the fact that diets do not work and I've vowed never to diet again.

On September 17, 2008, I had Duodenal Switch weight loss surgery. WLS is the only cure for morbid obesity, so I decided to make the plunge. I'm thrilled at the new world that's opening up for me! I can't believe how effortlessly the weight is falling off, and I can still eat the foods I love! Seriously. I've lost 100 pounds eating cheeseburgers, Mexican food, and heavily marbled steaks.

I'm exercising regularly; water jogging 3 times a week, FitLinxx strength training 2 times a week, Qigong twice a week, and African dance once a week.

I have made a commitment to use the Food Tracker here and keep up with what I'm asking my body to process. It's been a real eye-opener.
