My Bariatric Life

My Bariatric Life, Health Guide

(Profile)
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. Then in 2013 I underwent body contouring and facial plastic surgeries to remove the last traces of my former obesity. 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!

Suburban Living Can Make You Fat!

Fall in Love, Get Married, Move to the Suburbs and Get Fat I suppose it remains a part of the American Dream. We settle into marriage, use those college educations to land respectable employment, start a family, and buy a house in the suburbs.    The air is a bit cleaner; there is more grass and it is greener; there is more elbow room... Read moreChevron
