About me? Isn't that always the toughest question to answer? I'm a wife, homemaker, writer, business owner, gardener, cook, weight loss surgery post-op, housekeeper, pianist and an individual. I have a "PollyAnna" personality that some people find magnetic, others find annoying. I believe in the goodness of people. I am happiest when puttering in my home, kitchen or gardens. I was obese as a child, morbidly obese as an adult and had gastric bypass surgery in 1999. I have a website, livingafterwls.com, that is devoted to long-term success and healthy living for weight loss surgery patients. Most of all, I am living!
