Overweight since kindergarten, I grew up and out, and out some more. I didn't realize how bad it got unti my mother won a free membership for two to Curves back in 2006. I had no clue I was nearly 400lbs... not sure why the size 5x & 6x getting tighter didn't tip me off. It's been a journey to a healthier me since.

I lost 80lbs on my own over a 2 year period, then gained back 30lbs in 6 months and couldn't lose anymore no matter how hard I tried. I lost 12lbs on my surgerons practice diet in 4months, and 11lbs on my 2 week liquid diet. I had lost 70lbs post-op but gained 20lbs over the past year not going to see my surgeon. Found I stretched my pouch and tilted my band after weeks of acid reflux. I'm back at it again, with my team!
