Karen’s book ‘It’s Never Too Late’ was written to share her battle with obesity and how she overcame it with weight loss surgery. She provides encouragement and support to those who are interested in or have had such surgery. Her 10 year experience living the banded lifestyle gives her the passion and voice to serve this community.
In early 2000 her weight crept to an all-time high. She found herself going through the motions in a lifestyle she didn’t love, living in a body that was weighing her down mentally and physically. There were several indications that had made her realize if she didn’t make some drastic changes her future would never match that of what she had dreamed of.

In 2004 she had gastric band (Lap-Band®) surgery which helped her to shed 145 pounds. Through tips and tricks she has learned along the way as well as those she has personally developed, she has maintained the loss and gained a new life. If you or someone you know has struggled with weight loss, or has had weight loss surgery of any kind, this book is written especially for you. Enjoy her journey from birth to present day as she pulls back the curtain and shares the good, the bad, and the ugly throughout the transformation of her mind and body.

Karen Gillman considers her greatest life-purpose being a wife, mother of two and homemaker. She works full time as a VP and team leader at On Point Executive Center, Inc, is Co-Founder of Charity Chics, a women’s based networking company that gives all proceeds back to local charities. Karen is well recognized for a long list of business awards and serves her community with passion and purpose.
