After being  denied by my insurance company 3 times, I was  approved for and had weight loss surgery, a lap RNY  on 9/20/01 in Coos Bay Oregon, my surgeon is Dr. Tersigni.
I have now lost about 160 pounds and I am living my life again, instead of just existing. Feel free to email me with any questions or comments.
This surgery has changed my life. I am loosing weight very rapidly and getting my life back!
I welcome questions and comments from anyone genuinely interested in my weight loss  journey. Please see below for more pictures and to sign my guest book, feel free to email me too!
I am now down 98 pounds and wearing a size 16, can you believe that???? I have trouble with it!
Who would have believed that in a short 4 months a person could change thier life so drastically?
I have lost 125 pounds and I'm wearing a size 12.....unbelievaable!!!!
I have lost 145 pounds in 9 months, and I'm wearing a size 6 or 8 depending on the style. I am so very happy with myself now, I feel like doing more all of the time. This summer is the best ever!

Wow, what a year this has been! I am living life again, and enjoying every minute. I have lost about 160 pounds now, and I think I am done. I am wearing sizes 4 or 6 depending on the clothes. In my mind I am still the same size though, so it is a constant adjustment.
