I have been overweight my entire life.  I just wanted to be able to play with my kids and enjoy my grandkids one day.  I wanted to be present in their lives.

I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic and had high blood pressure.  I was becoming miserable in my own skin.  I decided it was time for a change.  It was time to take my life back.

Weight loss surgery saved my life.  I’m now living each day to the fullest and learning new things about myself daily.  I eat to fuel my body now.

You have to want it.  You have to change your life.  I am not where I want to be just yet, but I am getting there.
