It is now May, 2014 and I am 7 months out from surgery - I have lost 79 pounds and feel great - this was the best choice for me and I find new things to enhance this tool every day.

I had the gastric bypass on 10/15/13 and have now lost 56 lbs. I was diagnosed with Barrett's and since I have had GERD most of my adult life and the Lap Nissan didn't work, this was my only way to hopefully prevent cancer of the esophagus.

I am finally at a weight where I can exercise and still be able to breath and I have found that I actually like it. I ride my bike 5 miles, 5x per week and work low weights for my arms.

It has been a journey for me the past 3 months and I am so excited to see my surgeon today for my 3 month check up -

I know some people say this was the easy way out - but I have been very ill with nausea and other complications that it has been hard. For those that think this is easy - it's not.

I wouldn't have it any other way - THIS is the only thing that has every worked and I am determined to make it stick for the rest of my life.

Fitness Minutes: 16,977

My Goals:
My goal now is to find that happy weight where I can maintain what I am doing and not freak out over a couple of pounds.

My Program:
I love Spark. I use the nutrition tracker like it's my lifeline. I also weigh every day and measure 1x per week.

Personal Information:
I am originally from Craig, Colorado but have lived in Grand Junction, Colorado for 23 years. I have two children, three step-children and twelve grandchildren. I love to fish and we have a beautiful spot to go - the Grand Mesa - it is the most peaceful place I can think of. That is wher I go when life is just too much.

Other Information:
I hope that some day I will be able to return to this page with all my goals met.
