I had lapband surgery in March 2008. I've lost 65 lbs and am exercising 5 x a week. I'm loving the extra energy I have now! I love animals. My faith has really grown by leaps and bounds since January of 2008. I just recently found I have a taste for Starbucks! :-) I have been church shopping for a while and have found a church I think I'll stay at. I believe that Bible is the word of God. I have cats and birds. I love the outdoors.
