About BariBelle

Me at Disney 2001 before surgery and in 2011 after surgery

Who am I? Wow, that’s pretty hard to decide after 40 some years on the planet. I am a wife, a mother of two 20 something year old boys, a doggie mom to two super sweet adopted shelter pups, a Certified Bariatric Nurse, a gastric bypass patient, a perfectionist, a workaholic and shopaholic.

I truly enjoy teaching, public speaking (as long as there’s a translator because I do speak fluent Southern), staying busy and volunteering. I volunteer a lot! My volunteer work includes the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, the Tennessee Obesity Taskforce, and most exciting for me on January 1st, 2012 I assumed the role of Chairman of the Obesity Action Coalition.

Keep checking out my blog and maybe we’ll figure out together, just exactly, “Who is BariBelle?”
