My Bariatric Life

My Bariatric Life, Health Guide

I grew from fit to fat and became a processed food junkie and couch potato with diabetes, celiac disease, depression, acid reflux, asthma, and hypertension. I was in my 30s, morbidly obese and on ~10 prescription medications. Since 2003 I've maintained massive weight loss from gastric bypass surgery and remain free from 9 of the 10 prescriptions.

Nowadays I am committed to supporting the online patient community with outstanding resources and by sharing my long-term success in defeating obesity and obesity-related illnesses. Today, I'm a size small (down from a size 24W) and living larger than ever!

More Funding Needed to Explore Women's Health Issues

Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of publicity aimed at women to warn them about the symptoms they might experience if they’re having a heart attack. Those symptoms differ tremendously from the signs that men feel when their heart is under siege. So why didn’t we know this before? It’s because early research often focused... Read moreChevron
