My Gastric Bypass Journey

I am scheduled to have gastric bypass surgery on July 11, 2014. I decided I am going to blog about my journey. I was going to start an entire new blog but then realized there was no need. This surgery will be a fresh start and change how I eat, therefore changing how I cook. 

This is me. Of course not my everyday look, this was after a local stage performance that I was a part of. I'm part of a local theatre group and it is something I love very deeply. I started acting, dancing, and singing at a young age and have just started with my current theatre group last year after taking many years off due to us being stationed where there weren't local opportunities. 

I currently weigh in the mid-200's, am 5'4", and am 32 years old. I have struggled with weight most of my life but it got much harder after I had my children (now aged 9 and almost 8), and even worse after my hysterectomy in January 2013. It was a long process getting approved for the surgery but now it's right around the corner and I couldn't be more excited!

I invite you to join me on my journey as I get a fresh start on my life and my health. I am asking for no negativity on my blog and any poor behavior will not be put up with.
