Hi, I'm a 38year old Canadian woman. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

I have a wonderful 12 year old Border Collie named Ed.

I am trying to qualify for a RNY surgery, which may happen as early as March. I weigh 300 lbs and would like to be about 180 lbs.

Why is my name Jellyfishattack? Well, Jennifer is such a common name and when I was a toddler, I had an unusual encounter with a piece of a Portuguese Man of War jellyfish that had washed up on the shore in Florida. I was too young to remember the experience, but apparently, I knelt down on a little piece of a washed up jellyfish and immediately passed out. My father ripped the piece of jellyfish off me, but the damage was done. I was rushed to the closest ER - and they even closed a causeway for me to get there as fast as possible. After I got to the ER, a doctor told my parents that I was very allergic to the jellyfish and that I was lucky that I "had such a strong heart".

I would like to lose at least 120 lbs.

I would like to be able to walk and hour a day, cycle, swim a lot, garden, Rollerblade (maybe :), and join our local non-contact, no skills required hockey league.

But, even the littlest of improvements in my physical condition make me happy.

I am trying to have a gastric bypass surgery.

Currently, I either swim ten 200' laps at the cottage, or walk 15 minutes a day, as well as doing gentle leg lifts and arms lifts.
