My Personal Statement:
I am a proud mother of 2. I am a very active person and decided that I needed a big change in life if I wanted to continue to live a healthy productive life.

I woke up one morning and decided I had enoough of being overweight and constantly wearing clothes that hid the excess weight. I started out weighing 217 pounds before my epiphany. The morning I decided to change was the best decision I made for MYSELF, thus improving the quality of life for my whole family.

I went into my pantry and threw out everythin in a box or can. Did the same to the Fridge. Decided from that day on I was no longer going to put any processed foods in my body. I started exercising and actually loving it. A year and half later I had shed 80 pounds. I was a whole new person. I went from a size 22 to a size 8.

I also became a sun screen worshipper. I was seeing to many tell tale signs of sun abuse and did not like the fact that my face was looking older than it should. I enlisted the help of a great Aesthetician and we started refroming my skin care and rejuvenating the great skin I knew I could have.

I set a goal of keeping the weight off for a year I woudl think about surgery. I lost my Mother the Thanksgiving before I had my surgery. That only confirmed that life is to short and you have to take charge. I scheduled my surgery for June. My Mother was my biggest fan and always had wonderful words of encouragement. I knew she would be very proud of the decision I had made.

I interviewed several doctors and decided on Dr. Fred Hackney. He did not promise me any miracles, just that he could improve what was there. The minute I awoke from surgery I knew I had made an informed decision.

Now I may not be supermodel gorgeous, but I am smoking. I think the befores and afters tell all. I so love my body and would do this 100 times over.
