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

My journey began on November 18 of this year. I was scheduled to have surgery over a year ago and chickened out about a month prior to surgery.

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.
