And so it begins

Rate this Entry
Like so many of you on this site, I have struggled for years with the one thing I just could not control - my weight. I looked into gastric surgery twice and backed out twice. But the third time was the charm and my surgery is scheduled for August 23, 2016. Never did I think I would actually look forward to having a surgical procedure. But I am! I know the journey will just begin after surgery and it will be tough. I am so encouraged by everyone here and love reading the posts. I can relate to so many of you. I'm 66, in fairly good health, and want to stay healthy! I like to write so will use this forum to record my thoughts, frustrations, learnings, and feelings as I go through this. Let the journey to a new me begin!
