My name is Mia and I am a 33 year old married, mother of two (13, 11);   I have been on a weight loss journey for as long as I can remember. Always been on the heavier side. But I enjoy working out and eating healthy.  I love to try to recipes and see the look on my husband and kids faces when I am eating something so good they can't help but ask for a taste and I get in trouble for making a completely separate meal for myself.  So how, you ask, did I find myself on the way to bariatric surgery.  Well, an injury piled on the pounds and I found myself staring down the scale which was screaming 247 (my highest weight ever, including pregnancy).  Despite all my efforts, working out, eating healthy, doing alternative cardio, I would lose a few and gain it back plus more.  So I decided in 2015 to get sleeved.  Once my mind was made up everything else just fell into place.  Surgery was on 13 November 2015.  As I realized I was going to need a support group, I found this forum had an app which is a plus because I am rarely home; I mean who could ask for more than having "mobile" support.    I want to get back to doing some of the things I love, sports with the kids, dancing, etc. more often.
