My Name is Dorka and I am a 35 yr old mother of 1. My son has been the driving force for this new journey...it's actually a return to a journey I started almost 5 years ago. My weight has always been an issue...when I was a child I was always too skinny and as a young adult thyroid problems made me pack on some weight...as an adult I've used food as a way to cope and my weight as a way to hide from the world. About 6 yrs ago I decided to have the gastric bypass surgery. After researching for almost 2 yrs, I had the operation in Sept 2005 for the first time. Unfortunately, I had complications and on Dec 2005 I had to have the operation re-done. Although I don't regret the decision--no more diabetes or high blood pressure--the complications traumatized me. As a result, I avoided the required post-op follow ups. When I went to my primary at the beginning of the month, I had gained back 15 pounds. Given that I was shy of my goal by 15 pounds after the surgery, I find myself with 30 lbs to lose. More importantly than LOSING the weight, I want to change my lifestyle so I can keep the weight off and be as healthy as I can be.
This is a HUGE step for me...fingers crossed and lots of prayer!

Hey mama - thanks for the add! Always great to meet another Cubanita on here (I feel like there aren't *that* many of us!).

I'm SO glad you enjoyed the dvd review blogs -- I was on the fence when I got them myself, but I'm glad I made the splurge. You'll have to let me know which of the dvds is your favorite!

Tomorrow night there's a Zumba party here in Raleigh that I hope I get to make it to -- 3 hours of Zumba craziness!!!
