About Me

Hi there!


I am a wife and a mother of two amazing little girls! I have a great husband, great job, a great house! Life is good, right? Well life is good, but my weight holds me back.... a lot. I have always battled my weight growing up but it started really going up when I am pregnant! Once I had my second child, the total weight gained from both pregnancies was over 100lbs! And I felt every pound when I would go up and down the stairs!


Ever since I had my second baby I kept thinking about having weight loss surgery but I kept putting it off for some reason or another. Well September of 2010, I was so fed up with the way I looked that I took the first step to my journey and I am so happy I did!!!


Fortunately, the insurance company I am with will pay for the Vertical Sleeve only if I complete a 90 day Multidisciplinary surgical preparatory regimen. Which I thought was great since it gave me time to really do the research and read all the pros and cons of this surgery. The time flew by and the next thing I knew it was the day of my surgery!


December 27th, 2010 I had my surgery and I am loving my sleeve!


At first it was difficult divorcing food, having all the head hunger..... but now I have no problem being around a ton of food and not wanting to snack! I am so looking forward to living a happier, healthier life with my husband and kids.


Getting the sleeve has been the best thing I could have done for myself and I don't regret it at all!!!!


Cheers - Tiffany
