  1. Four-Month Surgiversary!

    Four-Month Surgiversary!
    When I started the process in December 2016 to "go for it", and take control of my out of control weight, I couldn't possibly have imagined that I'd be wearing a size MEDIUM by summertime and feeling 20 years younger! But by God I am wearing a medium AND feel 20 years younger.

    My BMI index was over 40 in January (41 in December) and itís now 26.5. I have gone from 2 and 3x in tops to a Large (which are now too large) and my pant size went ...
  2. 2nd stall done!

    First "blog" post on this thing! Yeah!!

I guess I just needed a little more food and exercise to start up again! So excited! ...

    I ate anything and everything I wanted. After all, I ...
  5. 18 month post-op, last time I see my team!

    Yesterday was my last post-op at the hospital. A little sad I must say, to say goodbye to my amazing surgeon and his lovely team. They all have been great since the start of the journey, for sure I will miss them but we promised to stay in touch!

    My doc was very happy about my progress. My body composition does show that I've been losing more fat and no muscle which is great. I did ask him if it was going to be doable to achieve my goal, he said it could take one more year but I'm ...
