    Last summer, my 9 year old grandson asked me often if he and I could go to the YMCA and swim at their pool(s) with the water slides and other water features. (I guess my pool at home was getting boring for the little guy.) I told him I would LOVE to go, but there was no way grandma would put on a swimsuit and wear it in public! I told him that "WHEN" I shed a massive amount of weight, I would gladly take him there.

  2. Initial Consult

    Today I had my initial visit with Dr. Adolfo Fenandez. They were very courteous and professional. I went in for what I thought would be a long visit but it turned out to be approximately 15 minutes. They took preliminary information (i.e. wt., ht., verified medical history).

I had to sign a contract stating that I would not gain any weight as it would delay my surgery ...

I really hope I am able to get the job as I had just been promoted in July of last year. It is a really competitive company I work for so whenever positions open up they have to weed out the applicants (internal applicants) to see who will get interviewed and then they interview quite a few for the limited positions. ...

    I realized recently I am an emotional eater. Doesn't matter if I am happy or sad or bored.. usually more so stressed, sad or bored.

    alcohol is still a tricky thing to figure out. sometimes it really hits me, sometimes not. ...
