I'm a single mom working full time while going to school full time, finishing up my final year for my BA in Psychology. I like online games like World of Warcraft & Overwatch, but I also like nature and the outdoors. I have a 13 year old son who is my life and inspiration for everything that I do. I started this weight loss journey last year April of 2017 through dieting and exercise, lost 35lbs. My doctor suggested bariatric surgery and I began the process in April of 2018 at the weight loss health center in Royal Oak, MI where I met my surgeon, Dr. Krause. Surgery was Friday’s august 17th today 7:30am. I'm so excited to be going on this journey but also equally excited to have found this site and community of all of us who share the same common bond.
