My Gastric Bypass Journey

Hello Everyone,

I was overweight as a teen but did not become morbidly obese until I entered my late 20’s.  I was fine with my body, high self esteem but my health started to deteriorate in 2011 and continued to get worse until I decided to make a change.  I made a decision in January 2013, that this was the year that I was going to take back control of my life and my body.  I contacted the Bariatric center in my area, had an initial consultation, attended a seminar and was approved for Gastric Bypass surgery by June 2013.   I had the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Procedure on August 9, 2013.  I have lost a total of 150 pounds.   I plan on posting every day to share with you about this journey, it has definitely been a roller coaster but I have no regrets.
