I am a music teacher, singer, accompanist, director. Anything with music is my thing. I've had a weight "problem" my whole life. My entire family has. My oldest sister is having Gastric Sleeve Surgery this November 2015. Another sister has had gastric bypass surgery. Another sister lost a lot by doing it herself. I've been trying on my own with Spark People's guidance for a year and I finally decided to have the VSG Surgery. I had my surgery on November 1, 2011 and lost 80 pounds.

My Goals:
I want to feel healthier and look nicer and improve my breath support. I'd like to feel more confident. I no longer want to worry about pre-diabetes. I want to get off of some of my medications.


My Program:
I had VSG Surgery Nov 1, 2011 at Mercy in West Des Moines, IA .

Following the program offered through the Bariatric Weight Loss Center there.

Other Information:
The Knots Prayer
Dear God: Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life. Remove the have nots that I have in my mind. Erase the will nots, may nots, might nots that may find a home in my heart. Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life. And most of all, Dear God, I ask that you remove from my mind, my heart and my life all of the 'am nots' that I have allowed to hold me back especially the thought that I am not good enough. Amen
