Personal Information:
Hello, Im a 39 year old ( holy crap almost 40 ) mom of two. Both college students. Im divorced and VERY happily remarried. We live in the Los Angeles area, pretty close to the beach. But Im never there. Thats one of my goals.


Spending more time at beach since surgery. In January it was warm enough to lay out. First time in many many years I want embarassed.

Other Information:
I have felt fat most of my adult life. But looking back I really wasnt. Unforunatly every year I put on alittle more weight. ARHHH it sucks! Right now I feel like my life is on hold until I loose the weight. There are things I want to do but being heavy makes it very difficult and dangerous. What Im talking about is SCUBA diving. Being obese put me at higher risk of injury. Not to mention its frickin hard to carry all that equipment around. I wont buy a cold water wetsuit until I loose ALOT of weight. So if I want to dive locally I have to rent a suit. A mens 2XL, is kinda humilating going in and asking for such a big suit. I dont see myself as a fat person. I guess Im a skinny person in a fat body.

Thinking back one of the reasons I allowed myself to get heavy was the denial I was even heavy at all.

    Thank you so much for the sparkgoodie... I agree with you totally that there is sooo much in life that feels like it is on hold due to being overweight... and getting this surgery will help immensely... I feel just like you..Like I am a skinny person in a fat body... I have been heavy my whole life but I have never seen myself as fat ya know what I mean... I have a strong feeling you do.. (smiles)....
    Take care of yourself and Goodluck...
    One step at a time... You can do it!!!

    Hi Paula,
    Thanks for the comment on my page. At the gym my favorite workouts are in the water. I get both resistance and cardio and though I feel it afterwards I don't wear out quite so fast and can workout a lot longer than out of the water. I attend a 45 minute class nearly everyday and will extend to another 45 minutes to an hour more after class is over. The best part is that I can then relax for a bout 10 - 15 minutes in the jacuzzi and then another 10 minutes in the sauna before hitting the shower. Its a great way to start my day and since I started this routine I have notice that my excess skin is shrinking a little. Mind you I still have a lot of excess skin but I believe that if I keep doing this after surgery then maybe I can avoid the need for plastic surgery a couple of years later. Since I am 51 I don't think I have to be tottaly tight like a 20 year old so a little loosness is okay with me.
    Your Hubby is cute too!
