Date of Surgery: August 2017
Starting Weight: 329 lbs.
Current Weight: 207 lbs.

About 3 months after my [weight loss] surgery, my emotions were all over the place and my weight loss had stalled.  I was feeling lost and hopeless, and it took a lot of courage for me to finally call the office to schedule an appointment with Paige.

Paige is helping me work through my past issues that let me to using food and eating to begin with.  I'm learning not to eat my emotions.  Some days it is still a challenge - I've been doing it for 30+ years.  I write in a journal, started a blog about my food addiction, and will color or do crafts to distract myself from the urge to eat when things are getting rough.

I'm seeing changes in me that go way beyond the physical appearances too!  I've gained a new level of self confidence I've never had - not even as a child.  I'm finding happiness and an inner peace I've never experienced in my life either.  Sometimes all of these changes terrify me.  Other times they excite me.  I'm ready to see what my next chapter looks like.
