As a mom of two and working wife, I simply put everything else ahead of me and my health. I did not realize how heavy I had gotten, but as my health deteriorated and I did not feel well, it was when my beautiful daughter had the courage to get Lap Band and she had success that I really considered weightloss surgery. Like many others, I could lose weight and gain back, could never keep it off. I had an "ah-ha" moment when someone said to me..."how many morbidly obese senior citizens do you see around?".

Today after losing more than 100 lbs, I will never go back. I am hopeful to get to my personal goal and lose 133 lbs but if I did not lose another pound, I would be happy. Today, while I am still a mom. And working wife, with my hubby by my side supporting me all the way, I will live a long and happy life!!
