I think today should be all about Becky Sawtelle. No wait, let’s give her the entire rest of the week. She deserves it!

Dr. Jamie Loggins, from the Central Maine Bariatric Surgery Center did the procedure the end of January. 

When I wrote an update in March she was not happy with how things were going. Here’s what she had to say: “I had a really strong relationship with food. Now I can’t eat whatever, whenever, and how much I want. I miss that.”
