(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!

Eat Raw Food At Every Meal Starting Today!

 

Aging is the road we are all required to walk, and as we make our way changes will accompany each step. In my 20s I said goodbye to my dark hair and hello to a touch of grey. In my late 40s, lines intruded on my once smooth and flawless skin. Then aches and pains... Read moreChevron
