Lovin' life with Lea


Lovin Life with Lea is a blog by a forty-something woman who had gastric bypass weight loss surgery (WLS) to take back her life.  Now, after losing half of her self (literally--410 pounds to a daily weight that ranges from 202 to 205 pounds!), Lea is living life instead of just existing and she is loving it!  She shares recipes, product reviews, support, and just general discussion on life, weight loss surgery, and more!


Name is Lea Burnside.  From--Wild, Wonderful West Virginia, but only for the last 10 years.  Prior to that, I lived in Florida for many years and grew up there.  I have two daughters (17 and 20) and one awesome grandbaby (almost 9 mos).  We live out in the country--20 minutes from the closest grocery store, gas station, etc.  We have some farm animals and enjoy the quiet life.  I am a teacher (secondary, social studies) but am not working full time right now, just substituting.  I hope to go back to work full time soon--well, as soon as a position comes available in my area...  As noted in my blog description, I had weight loss surgery and lost over 200 pounds in order to get my life back.  I am thoroughly enjoying living life now and loving it!
