About You

As you sift through all the information here on my page, you might be wondering what does all of this mean to me? Are some of the things that battle in your head things like relationships, health, self esteem?

Do you have fears and frustrations?

Are you single, worried that you will continue to be alone because you question whether or not people find you attractive at your current weight?  Or are you with someone and wonder if their eyes stray because of how you look?

Do you feel awkward in social situations because people are judging you?

Did you endure the pain of bariatric surgery and wonder what to do now?

Do you hate going to your closet every day? Are there clothes in there that you wish you could fit into again?  

Do you hate going shopping?  Trying on clothes?  Do you wish that you didn't have to shop in the plus size department anymore?

Are you worried about the future of your health?  Your life?

Do you have hopes and dreams?

Do you wish you had the energy to run a 5K?  Or play with your kids without getting winded?

Do you want to lose weight?  Is there a certain size you want to fit into?  


What's in your reflection?

How do you see yourself?  


Months from now?

Years from now?


You might be wondering, how does she know?  Well, she has firsthand experience...

I have lost and gained the same 100 plus pounds many times in my life, until I finally decided that was enough.  I had lap band surgery a few years back, and was doing great until I faced some complications and ended up having the band removed and had a sleeve done... I struggled with some more complications but once those were resolved I continued my journey to being a healthier me and I am here now.  

Am I a perfect weight? Not according to the all the government charts. Am I healthy? Absolutely!  Did I struggle? Yes, yes I did... and I still do.  But I don't beat myself up and I remind myself that every day is a new day.  Do I deprive myself? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Because deprivation begets failure.  Has the self loathing stopped? Have I learned to love myself?  Has my self esteem grown? Yes, yes, yes!
