I weighed 167 the day I got married in 1993... and almost immediately started trying to have babies... two years later, I was on steriods and infertility meds and had gained 50 pounds.

fast forward

2012, June 27 I walked into my primary care doctor weighing in at 217 for the 17th year in a row.... I told her that I was done. I was not willing to be fat another day.

She led me to Dr JM Bruce... on July 18, I visited with him. After two weeks of a whirlwind of pre-surgery tests and grocery shopping, I had my surgery on August 9th and never looed back!!!
