I’m Amanda and this is my journey to weight loss, fitness, life-balance, and all of those other things we seek in our lives to make it more fulfilling.  I am married, a mother of three wonderful children, I am in grad school, and work as a Project Manager (see where life-balance plays a big role in my world?).

I made the decision to have Gastric Sleeve Surgery early in the year and had it on September 16th, 2015.

I am starting this journey at 240 lbs and my goal is 140.  I hope to find others going through similar journeys, to give and receive support and encouragement, and hold myself accountable to the process of finding a happier, healthier me.

If you want to reach out to me find me at findingskinnyme@outlook.com.

PS-I’m an hatch-ling blogger so please, bear with me as I figure my way around….

      1. I’m 5’7″ but also want to lose about 100 pounds. What made you decide to have surgery? I’m really hoping I can do it through diet and exercise, but some days just feel impossible 😦

      2. Because I have been busting my butt with diet and exercise for over a year now but the weight isn’t moving and neither is my overall health. I have a problem with food, especially when I don’t see the scale move after dieting for weeks-then I go on a food binge. It’s awful. I think sleeve surgery will (hopefully) be the nail in the coffin of this weight. I have a little over 100# to lose.
