[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#660099]hello everyone! i am so excited to be here and meet everyone. [/color][/size][/font]

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#660099]my name is jackie and i am 42 yrs old. i very recently got divorced (january 23) and that was my first "new life change" and having the sleeve surgery is my second "new life change". nowhere to go but UP from here![/color][/size][/font]

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#660099]8 yrs ago i weighed 292 lbs and was actually happy with how i looked. a lot of bad life decisions led me to gain until 3 weeks ago i weighed 398 lbs. after losing the husband, now i am going to loose the weight and rejoin the "real world" again. [/color][/size][/font]

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#660099]in 2 weeks since attending the weight loss seminar and deciding to do this and starting to follow a "healthy eating plan", i have lost 8 lbs. so currently i am at 390 lbs. i graduated high school weighing 180 lbs and that is my ultimate weight loss goal. but my FIRST goal is to reach 292 lbs again and fit into all the cute clothes i have saved.[/color][/size][/font]

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#660099]i have my first consultation with the surgeon on march 21 (next week!) and i am excited and nervous. i am so, so, so glad i have found this new "home" and all you wonderful people! i can't wait to make new friends.[/color][/size][/font]
