  1. 10 days post op

    I haven't posted since my surgery, I've been busy. I am doing fantastic. I flew back to Canada on the 13 and took the 14 off of work since I flew in so late.

All in the same it is an extremely exciting feeling to have this opportunity to become a better me, a stronger me, a more confident me!

    Well...I am now a month away from my surgery, and am getting more and more nervous as the day approaches. I have never been through a surgery before so this is all new to me.

    Also I am very excited to start a new journey in my life. I have struggled with my weight for 10 years now. I use food for a comfort, and with that I have become less active over the years. I used to play all kinds of sports, and once out of high school that stopped, and as years went by I began to hate myself ...
