My New Life!

FAST FORWARD a year and I'm feeling healthy now! I have more energy to keep up with my two little ones and I'm no longer morbidly OBESE...just slightly overweight! Approaching the world of maintenance and I'm terrified!

If you are on the fence about having weight loss surgery - please message me to hear my story. It has been life-changingly amazing and I am an open book. I will share the ups and downs with you. But please know that it may seem scary now but when you are on the other side - you will wonder why you were so afraid to take that step!
