Road to a healthier me

Right now I am a stay at home mom to a beautiful 5 year old daughter. I am in the process of getting ready to have the gastric bypass done (hopefully in the next week or two).

I have always been on the heavy side according to all of the medical standards. When I was 21, I fell in a bathtub and chipped some of the bone in my knee. I have had issues being able to do things due to my knee and have made many more excuse I am sure. I have slowly gained weight from that point on. I was ...

I have always been on the heavy side according to all of the medical standards. When I was 21, I fell in a bathtub and chipped some of the bone in my knee. I have had issues being able to do things due to my knee and have made many more excuse I am sure. I have slowly gained weight from that point on. I was inactive and depressed but continued to eat like I was an active teenager.

I am now 36 with depression, thyroid issues, and arthritis in my knees. I have decided that the best option for me at this point and this weight to have WLS to basically save my life. I know that it won't be easy but I want to see my daughter grow up, get married, and have kids.

I wanted to thank you all personally for your kind comments and encouragement as I passed my 100 lb lost milestone - today in fact down 101 lbs. Today I have been hyperemotional - my tears turned this morning from pain to joy after I saw my pain Dr about my knee. Since seeing him I have been crying all afternoon everytime I think about how much good has come out of every challenge the last six months have given me. I have NO REGRETS and nothing but thanks to you for helping me feel like I mattered when I thought I didn't, and for teaching me it's okay to be honest, life's easier when you stay in the day. You all need to know, that you are beautiful, loved, and blessed by more people and in more ways than you can imagine - and that from the bottom of my heart, I am eternally grateful for having each and every one of you in my life.

For everything you've given me I will endeavor for all the days of my life to Spark It Forward in everything I do. Your friend always, "Sprink"
