Hi. I am a Wife and mother. I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. Weighing in at 237 pounds I decided to have lapband perform by Gary Katz in May 2008 and lost 50 pounds. My band failed me and sprung a leak. By now I was steady gaining my weight back. Because my insurance had a bariatric exclusion. I had to self pay. I didnt like the price my doctor and the affiliated hospital was charging me. I also didnt like how my doctor brushed my concerns of me not losing and having no restriction with my band. So I found another doctor and the fight begun......
Dr. Mark Pleatman and his staff stayed by my side and HELPED me through my "insurance fight" and the price of my surgery.
On 7-31-13 and weighing in at 219 I became a sleeved women.I am DETERMINED to lose these pounds and become the BEST me I can be.

Join me on my journey......
