I am starting this blog to document my journey through the bariatriac surgery process.

I have struggled with my weight my whole life and have had success with weightloss and exercise in the past only to gain it all back and then some. I have been 'stuck' for the past few years, maybe it's the over 40 metabolism? Or it's the bad habits that got me here.
