Erin's Message

The DS has changed my life in so many ways. I now have the confidence to get out in the world and be seen. I play with my kids, have energy, and have even run in a 5k race with my son! I had ben approved for surgery in 2005, and 2 weeks before, called and cancelled - I was terrified. After another round of losing and regaining weight, I decided to try again, and it was the best thing I've ever done for myself! I'm so glad I didn't let fear stop me, because I would be barely living if I had.
