I'm a married New Jersey girl that resides at home with my husband and our 2 cats. I have Fibromyalgia amongst other medical issues, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying walks and taking pictures.

I've struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I've tried every diet and diet pill out there. I've done Curves, lost inches but life threw me a curve ball called Fibromyalgia.

The medications I am on have also added to my weight which is something I haven't dealt with well. I am hoping and praying that the Sleeve surgery will finally be my answer. I can't take the way I look and feel anymore.
