Hi everyone! I'm a grandma with #7 coming in August, own my own business and watch a couple of little people (8 week old and 1 1/2 yr old) during the week. My weight has always been higher than everyone else, 5 yrs ago I lost 100 lbs with diet and LOTS of exersize with a trainer which was EXTREMELY costly. Shortly after that my thyroid went haywire, my gall bladder when bad (surgeon said it was one of the worst ones he'd seen) and all that time, sweat, tears and hard work vanished! I tried many other diets and nothing stuck or worked. SO I talked with my PCP about surgery. She agree'd I would be a perfect candidate and sent to me to seminar to learn more and there began my WLS journey. I chose the Gastric Sleeve because knowing me, I needed something permanent! Yes I am a grandma but I don't want to move like one LOL Goal is to be comfortable in my own skin, to be the "fun hip Grandma", and to rock a business to show all of this kids and grandkids that dreams can come true IF you are willing to stretch your comfort zone and grow as a person.
