Hi! I am Julie. I was raised in Louisiana but have lived in Mississippi since right after high school (a long time ago) but I am still a Louisiana girl at heart. I was always super skinny and wore size "slims" as a kid. In high school, I had a great figure. My measurements were 36-26-38. I was very active with sports and cheerleading. I married right after graduation and the weight begin to pile on. I went from a size 7 to a size 18 in one year. I divorced a few years later and eventually met a wonderful man that loved me at my now size 20. Hear we are 20 years later and I'm up to a size 26. He still loves me just as much but due to recent diagnoses of diabetes, high BP, and Osteoarthuritis we are both worried about growing old together. I am hoping to have the VSG the end of February 2013 and start my new life.
