Welcome to my page! I have embarked on quite a journey. On December 26th I will have gastric sleeve surgery. I have fought this battle for so long and it's time to get some help. We cannot always do it on our own, especially when pain becomes so much we avoid moving.

I've been "stuck" for a long time and am looking forward to being released from what is literally weighing me down!

Follow my journey and Merry Christmas to all of you! Change is not only possible, it's ...

Thanks for stopping by my page. I'm doing great since my surgery. I have tolerated everything I've tried with foods. I get full faster which is a good thing. I'm under 200 for the first time in 11 years!

Karen- I've already started (last Monday)- I've lost 10 pounds already! They wanted us to be on it at least 3 weeks before surgery to get the liver as small as possible. Parts of it are harder than I expected and parts are easier. I am so sluggish and tired it's hard for me to prepare my food. I'm actually looking forward to after when all I have to do is drink protein! I'm tired of cooking.

Are you on facebook? I joined the group "Low Carbing Among Friends" I think is the name and they post a lot of recipes and stuff!

I would use this week to taper off slowly if you can then on Monday it will be easier for you!
