Recently one of my kids asked me why I wasn't in any of our family photos. That question stopped me in my tracks. I can't deny it, I've been the "phantom participant" for most of my kids' life. And that saddens me immensely, but I cannot change the past. But I can change this path going forward.... READ MORE

I'm 61 and I've been yoyo-ing between size 12 and 18 since I was a teenager. Up and down this same 65lbs about 10 times in all. Every day is a battle and although I've won many days, the only inevitable loss I have at the end, is in the battle. I've hit 61 and I just can't battle again. I... READ MORE

I have had a rough couple of years. Starting in December 2011, I was three months pregnant and lost job. My eldest son was 15 at the time so my pregnancies with really spaced apart. I had 1 C-section in 1996, a myomectomy (fibroid removal) in 2009 and a C-section and tubal ligation in 6/2012... READ MORE

The process has taken about a year and has been an incredibly long journey but has been totally worth it and an eye opening experience in regard to my relationship with food. I would definitely recommend everyone do research on the best procedure for you. I was originally sold on gastric bypass... READ MORE

I love love love my sleeve. In the beginning I was so fast and ready to get it done but then the day of surgery I freaked out and got really really scared. Well when I got to the clinic I should say.

I hate hospitals, needles, doctors and medications, so it's a big deal for me to even contemplate this, but I am so desperate to feel normal again,..I think I have long forgotten what that even means!
