Wow! Praise God for your accomplishments!!! Thank you sooo much for sharing with me. You are a beautiful woman and was at your peak. However, I know you were probably told the same thing as I was and I got tired of it. I knew I was/am overweight and unhealthy no matter how pretty everyone kept telling me I am. Now I'm dealing with several co-morbities that have crept upon me. I'm scared but I'm getting prepared for my approvals to get the Gastric Bypass Surgery within the next few months. My sister had it done 7 years ago, without any complications, and she lost over 200 llbs and still looks great. She's going to be my buddy. I'm glad that I found this website because you just inspired me sooo much when I saw your pictures. Peace & blessings always from Dana in Atlanta!!!!
