I just launched my website MyBariatricLife.org
Sep 23, 2015
I achieved a long-held dream to launch my website MyBariatricLife.org. Please check it out and subscribe to my newsletter!!! MyBariatricLife inspires patients with outstanding resources and by sharing my long-term success in defeating obesity and its related illnesses.
To those embarking upon their transformations, I wish that you find the joy and love of your bodies that I have found. It’s not simple to change ingrained behaviors, but healthy habits do become habitual overtime. So to an extent, it does get easier with each step you take. It starts today. Are you ready to take that first step, and the next? If you are, just whisper “yes” to yourself. It is time to acknowledge it out-loud and make it real.

I invite you to check out my before and after photos on Google+ and Flickr.
My Bariatric Life "before" and "after" plastic surgery!
May 28, 2014
Having gone through my transformation, I think that I now know how people feel having hit the lottery after decades of living in poverty. My results from body contouring plastic surgery with Dr. Joseph F. Capella and facial rejuvenation with Dr. Catherine Winslow are so good, that it is sometimes surreal. After a decade of not having achieved the body and face I wanted to achieve from weight loss surgery, there are times when I feel as if this is just a wonderful dream. And I might awaken from this wonderful dream, lying in my bed in my former puddle of flesh, and not caring much about how I looked.
Just a little more than a year ago, the "before" photo was taken at Easter. Yes, hard to believe that the person in both images is one and the same. The "after" photo was taken this past March, just 5-mos after my stage 2 body contouring with Dr. Capella and 3-mos after my facial plastics with Dr. Winslow.
Dr. Joseph F. Capella is a magician! My Bariatric Life 5-mos post stage 2 body contouring -- amazing transformation with 50 inches and 40 pounds gone forever!
I now have the body that weight loss surgery could not give me. It has been decades since I looked this good. As of this writing, I have lost 50-inches and 40-pounds. I went from a size 14 jeans being tight to size 2 jeans in less than a year since my tummy tuck (my first plastic surgery). Never did I imagine that a simple tummy tuck would lead to this.
If it can happen to me, then it can happen to you. And it's a whole lot more possible than your chances of winning the lottery! It really can and does happen. Just checkout the ~thousand photos on Dr. Capella's website. As for Dr. Winslow, if you think her website gallery is impressive, just wait until you see the before and after photos in her practice.
I hit the lottery alright!
