Hi my name is Francis Daniels. I am 32 years old. I live in Lubbock, Tx with my husband Matt and my wonderful daughter Bailey. I have struggled my whole life with my weight and have been on a journey to change that. I am 5'4 and my starting weight was 360 lbs. In October 2011 I had bariatric surgery. I chose to have the duodenal switch. Since surgery i have lost 155 lbs. However, with the stress of Grad school, I regained about 40lbs. Now that Grad School is out I am determined to get back on track. My journey has taken longer than most, but it is all about the journey. My prayer is that someone out there will be inspired by my journey and that we can all be better people inside and out.
