About Me

I am 47 years old and married with 4 sons.  I am also a fourth grade teacher.  My experience with weight loss (and gain) is probably similar to many of yours....yo-yo weight as long as I can remember...each time going a little higher on the scale.  There have been times (although few and brief) that I was satisfied with my weight, but the older I get and the more weight I've gained, I can't seem to make my way back there.  Eventually I became discouraged and resigned myself to  life of being overweight, unhealthy, and unattractive.  I made my decision to pursue weight loss surgery after seeing a feature article in my local newspaper on a woman I knew who had lap-band surgery and was having great success.  Her story inspired me to take a fresh look at myself, and I started to research whether weight loss surgery could be the ticket to enabling me to regain the life I want.  Fast forward.....I met with my surgeon for the first time and started my journey in October 2014 and am scheduled for surgery on March 31, 2015.  I have done all my homework and feel very confident and excited about my decision and my future.  I am fortunate to have a very supportive family, but I am also hoping to meet other sleevers on this site and go through this journey together.
