So my name is Stephanie. I am a single parent of two children who are currently 6 and 15. I have thrown around the idea of having surgery for many years now, but finally really ran with it last year. My first appointment was in February and 1 year later I am FINALLY getting a surgery date! I am having surgery February 25, 2014 with Roller Weight Loss in Fayetville, Ar! My heart is excited yet nervous. I know it will be a tough journey, but a journey I am more than willing to face. I know it will improve the quality of not only MY life, but my children's lives. They need a more active mommy and I need a more active life. And so....the journey begins!
