Rebecca: Weight is something I struggled with most of my life. And I finally just decided I needed to do something, and I needed to do something for myself.
I went to the Summa Bariatric Center and I met with Dr. Zografakis, and he said that I was a candidate for bariatric surgery. Doctor "Z" makes you feel very important. He said you will be a star, you will shine, and he was right. I get teary-eyed every time I think about it. I have truly been blessed.
Before surgery, it was like the world was in black and white. And then after surgery, it's in Technicolor, it's just so beautiful now. I'm the person that I always knew that I was inside. She was just trying to get out.
My new fascination is clothing, so I have stock in all the stores that I shop in now because it has gotten so crazy.
