OK, so here it is. My blog tracking my journey with Bariatric Surgery. You know, Gastric By-Pass Surgery. I have been thinking about it for some time now, just never got around to it. Well I have started the ball rolling. After speaking with my physician, and her telling me I was a perfect candidate for the procedure, I decided to take the plunge.
I called and am getting the referral for my initial visit, and have a ton of reading to do. As of now, I am 5'7.5" and weight 305 lbs. My BMI is 47.1, that translates to grossly or morbidly obese. I am 40 years old, and this is the time I could be getting all those nasty illnesses related to being obese.
Now is the time to take action. So I am. Taking action that is. I hope to keep this blog going throughout my procedure, recovery and weight loss. So tune back in for more. For now, I have a tone of reading to do, as I stated earlier.
