On opting for a weight loss surgery last May:
My surgeon said they cut my stomach in half. This would limit my hunger and capacity to eat. My brain chemistry would change and I’d want to eat healthier. I’ll take it!
On loving her new figure:
I was in a war with my body. If I’d started treating it better sooner, I wouldn’t have spent some many years hating myself. But I love my body now. There’s nothing ugly about me.
On not wanting to be skinny:
I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don’t get skinny. If I could lose enough weight just to be a little chubby I would be over the moon! My beauty doesn’t come from a mirror, never has never will.
On being ready to date:
I am ready to receive a gentleman caller.
