From my first meeting, I knew this was my time for change. The knowledge that was shared with me through the seminar, nutrition classes, and support group meetings changed my whole way of thinking. I’ve learned a new way to live and use the tool that was given to me. I’ve been taught how to eat healthy and exercise properly. Facing these challenges have opened up a whole new world for me. My journey has been a lifesaving adventure for me that will continue for the rest of my life. My surgery was June 27, 2012. I have successfully lost 130 pounds to date. My health is great. I am no longer on any medicines. I can now enjoy unlimited activities with my family with no restrictions. My home business has even improved. I welcome the new life I have!
