About Me

  • Biography
    Like many others, I've been overweight almost my entire life. I looked into gastric bypass back around 2010 but my insurance didn't cover it. Now, years later, my current insurance covers the procedure and I'm sooooo ready for it!

      Fantastic... I love Halloween... 1 of the things i look forward to is all the costume options when most of this weight is gone....

      Right?!? The thought of actually being able to just buy one of those costumes in a bag and not worrying about if it'll fit is such an exciting idea!
