Hello all June sleevers!!! I'm so excited about our New journey and even more excited about finding this site & such supportive awesome people!!!
I'm a born and raised here in Sunny San Diego. Yes...more then half my life I lived in a bathing suit! **I was a Lifeguard**
Im 35 years young, A wife and mother of 4 fabulous kids. My youngest is a VERY energetic 3yr old boy.. Did I mention that he was 11 pounds 23 inch!!
I'm proud to say I'm a Longshoreman. Union Strong! My job away from home is very taxing.. Very physical.. Very exhausting... Lots of fumes, outdoor dirt and elements damaging to the skin...But I love my job:)
The reason I decided to make this change in life for myself and my family is back in 2/2009 I was hit by a co worker operating a forklift. I suffered several injuries. Seven months into my recovery I found out I was pregnant with my son. Between the injury and pregnancy I gained 60 ponds. After giving birth I underwent shoulder surgery due to the accident, and I was placed on a very stationary lifestyle. I finally recovered and returned to work with only about 15 pounds gone and quickly realized I needed to get back to my weight prior to the injury... After trying EVERYTHING under the sun besides simply not eating...I decided to look into lap band.. Well something about putting a foreign body into me didn't feel right so I looked into the sleeve! Now one week post op I'm super excited and glad that I made this decision! I'm feeling great and have a great support system here at home and now online. I look forward to getting back into the pool and teaching my little ones how to swim:)
Positive thoughts, Hugs, and Best wishes to ALL on our new journey<3
