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!

Do You Forget To Drink Your Water Regularly?

Water is good for you. It's not just the stuff of the rain that breaks a summer heat.  It is not just the stuff I swim in while at the beach. And It's not just the stuff my dad casts his line into before he preps his exaggeration about the size of a fish that got away. Water is much more critical than any of those things... Read moreChevron
