About Me

  • Gender
My story begins when I was in 3rd grade. I "filled out" and have been filling out ever since. Two years ago my OB-GYN suggested the LAP band for help with weight lose. I didn't take him seriously at first, but when he suggested it again a year later, I was at the highest weight ever in my life, even pregnancy weights. This time I listened. I enrolled in the Dean Weight Loss Management program and have currently lost 27 lbs and am looking to sumitting on October 24th. I look forward to getting off of this yo-yo I've been riding for 35 years. Time to take the weight off and keep it off. For me and my family.
