My name is Linda and I've been overweight for over 30 years. I've tried everything to lose weight and I've actually lost a little weight. I decided about 12 years ago to stop trying. When I found SparkPeople, I decided it was time to try again. That was actually 4 years ago. I lost my way (weigh) again. October 15, 2012 I was given a fresh start. I had gastric bypass surgery (Roux-en Y) and with this tool, I hope to find the support and information I need to lose the weight I need to lose. I am also learning to eat more healthy and making better eating decisions.
Having gastric bypass isn't the "easy" way out.
Gastric bypass isn't a magic bullet.
Gastric bypass is a weight loss tool.
The gastric bypass patient still has to learn how to eat the right foods and make the right choices. Otherwise the tool will fail.

I want to be the Me I used to be... the me that's inside.
