I had to do some major rearranging in my life. At 5'3" tall, I was tipping the scales at 260 pounds. I needed to do something.

I have struggled with my weight all of my life. I can not remember a time when I wasn't on some type of fad diet trying to lose weight.

After many failed attempts, and the realization that years of abusing my body had taken a toll, I decided to look into Weight Loss Surgery (WLS)

Like many people, I thought surgery was the "easy way out" and for years refused to even consider it. I found myself at wits end however, and it was starting to look like a possible option.

I did my research, attended a seminar given by the local hospitals Bariatric Team, and then, with all information in hand, I made an appointment with my family doctor. Together, her and I decided that WLS was a very viable option.

On April 10, 2012 I underwent Roux N Y Gastric Bypass Surgery. It was NOT easy. It was a struggle each and every day, but in the end was totally and completely worth it.

To date I have lost 137 pounds.
I went from a Size 22/24 to a 2/4

Best of all, I have discovered a part of me I never, ever, not even in a million years, knew existed... my inner athlete. Apparently, she was hiding deep inside somewhere I never knew existed.

I went from not even being able to walk up a flight of stairs to completing a 8 Mile Mud Run.

Now, that I have done all of the rearranging - it is working on maintaining all that I have accomplished.
