Approximately a year and a half ago I started considering getting gastric surgery. It began as an idea after I saw an old college friend who was always bigger than me on Facebook. I hadn’t kept up with her after college and she looked amazing! (She had lost over a hundred pounds.) To be honest, I was a bit jealous. I had struggled with my weight throughout my entire life, trying just about everything and nothing seemed to work. And after the scales tipped at 252.8 lbs I knew I had to be proactive about my weight issue. After consulting with a few physicians, and starting a lengthy pre-approval process with my insurance, I was on my way.
This website is my journey, my observations, and my recipes. I’m not a doctor, and I can only share what has worked for me along the way. I had the gastric sleeve surgery on November 22, 2013, but that was only the beginning. As my husband constantly reminds me – this is a marathon and not a sprint.
