About Me

  • Gender
I have been overwieght for so many years. I had stopped trying to do anything to change the situation. I hated how I looked, never wanted pics taken, never shopped 
for clothes unless I absolutely had to. In May I found that I had a hiatal hernia and I needed to do a surgery for correction. When I went to the surgeon I said 'let's put a band on that stomach as long as you are in there! I laughed and he said "great idea" , I went to the U of M in late July and the rest is history. I have lost about 16 lbs and started exercising at Curves. I finally feel like I might be a healthy old woman. My biggest goal is to get off all the meds I take. I just want to be healthy, if looking good comes along, good deal!
I want to have a support group I can be accountable to. I want to be one of the people who succeed and live a long healthy life.
