About Me

I'm excited and nervous about getting WLS. I never thought I'd be here... not because I wasn't morbidly obese but because I always thought I could do it on my own. My mother's death at 90 last fall (healthy woman, busy, vivacious, not obese) made me realize I won't make it to that age unless I get this off NOW. The anxiety and worry of current and future health problems far outweighs my ego! I am learning to see this as a beautiful gift and tool to get me back on the healthy track, so I can be more physically active and happier.
