This was me before I had gastric bypass surgery in 2001.


It’s important to remember where we once were and where we are now.


This is also me 15 years later after getting my health back through full submersion into a whole foods, plants based diet.


My wonderful husband and I are more active now than I could have ever dreamed possible. We run 5K’s together, conquer mud runs and we just did our first triathlon July 2016!

We are on our way to being oh-so-plant-strong!

    Hi Reyna! Great story! I Just discovered you. I am 62 and had my gastric bypass in 2013. Starting to put the weight back on and I’m considering veganism for several reasons. Is your FB page down? I am unable to find it. Thanks for taking the time and effort to create this site.
