If you had asked me a year ago if I would ever have the Roux-en-Y procedure, I would probably have said no. I have been interested for many years but didn’t see a way it could be possible financially. However, around March of 2017, I began researching the options again. This time I actually scheduled an appointment to attend the weight loss surgery seminar at a local hospital. The day of the seminar I knew that I would make this dream a reality.
My surgery was scheduled for June 16, 2017. My procedure went very well and now I’m starting a new chapter in my life.
I began this journey at my high weight of 294 and a size 26/28. As of today, I am down 74 pounds.
This blog will not only be about the physical changes but the emotional changes as well. After eight months, I am learning so much about myself. I am rethinking who I am, who I want to be and what the future holds for this wife, mother, caretaker to an elderly mom and Mimi to the most precious 20 month old baby boy.
I hope you join me on this journey!
Have a blessed day!
